What are you talking about re; Denver sharing certain traits of high altitude only with Salt Lake City?
Unless i'm missing something, what you're saying makes no sense.
What Denverian was saying about the low humidity and lack of bugs are traits that low-altitude Arizona shares as well. What I was saying is that it isn't that unique to high-altitude areas only.

Yes, but now combine that with 4 distinct seasons. That is a big difference between cities like Denver/Co Springs/Albuquerque and low elevation cities like Phoenix/Tucson.

Doesn't take longer, but we do use the "high altitude instructions" on cake and cookie mixes.

True. Probably just a "Western thing". We moved to Denver from SoCal where the humidity was comfortable and bugs minimal, and we were at near sea level.

The Northeast Heights makes up the majority of the city and it is on the northern end of the east mesa. The altitude in the city ranges from about 4,900 feet along the Rio Grande to over 6,300 feet in the foothills neighborhoods at the eastern edge of the city next to the Sandia Mountains, which have a pinnacle height of 10,678 feet.

Santa Fe is a high-altitude city. It sits at 7,198 feet above sea level.

Colorado Springs is also a high-altitude city. It is at 6,035 feet above sea level.
I didn't realize Albuquerque was so high. It's "The Other Mile High City"
