that 4900ft must be in the valley cause most of Albuquerque is higher than Denver.




Albuquerque has a population over 500,000 so this must be the answer to the posters question.

Spokane is somewhere about 2,000 ft. and the area has 500,000 people (when you include Coeur d'Alene, which is slightly higher in elevation )

Hrmm... Bogota, Columbia is a pretty populated place (over 700,000 thousand people), and is pretty high up (8355 feet). Puts Denver to shame.

Oh, wait, this is General U.S. Nevermind.

SLC is near 5000 ft but has a significantly smaller Population.

I think Denver is your best bet
Jst a quick heads up for those not familar with SLC.

SLC downtown itself is only around 181,000, but the metro area is 898,387 and the Wastach Front 1.8million.

Most residents of the area live between Ogden and Provo (a distance of 80 miles or 128 km), which includes Salt Lake proper, or in other words 80% of Utah lives along the front.

Jst a piece of useless info.

I've heard that climates change drastically within city limits of La Paz. The lower you are the more humid and lush it is. The higher you are there is less vegetation and air.

yea that's true. El Alto which is the highest suburb in La Paz, can dip well below zero(in celsius) at night, not something you would expect from a South American town(except Patagonia)
