One of the highest towns in Colorado (about 10,000 feet high), is Leadville. It is a former mining town that during the 19th century, was the second most populated town in Colorado. Denver, as always, came first. Leadville is the perfect place for those who love food (who isn't?), beer, and jogging.
Years back, if you said Leadville, you said the Wild West. It was the center of it all and the place where everything happened. To this day, the ancient mines have a significant part in the town's history, and the National Mining Hall of Fame museum has become an important tourist attraction.
