    Enjoy the view of the Rocky Mountains at the top of the steps facing west. Take in the splendor of the sparkling gold dome, just refurbished. Can you find the step marking one mile high? (5,280 ft.)

    Visit during a parade (like Memorial Day, which goes right down Lincoln Street) to get a great vantage point of the festivities.

    State law prohibits the construction of any structure that would block the view (of like 200 mountain peaks) from the golden dome.

    Intentionally reminiscent of the United States Capitol, it was constructed in the 1890s from Colorado white granite, and the distinctive gold dome consists of real gold plate. Read more

    If you can make it past security, head to the broom closet in the hallway on the left, next to the governor's office. I left half a bag of corn chips there in case anyone gets hungry. Enjoy!

    The Denver State Capitol uses the entire world's supply of Colorado onyx as wainscot paneling. Seriously, the world's supply. No more has ever been found.

    Welcome to the Colorado Capitol. This is truly one of the most historic buildings in Denver. Be sure to check out the House Chamber, Senate Chamber and old Supreme Court Chamber.

    The Colorado capitol was locally sourced -- its 272-foot-tall tower with marble from Gunnison, rose onyx inside from Beulah and the dome's gold donated by the Colorado Mining Association, LEED (EB).

    On Saturday mornings you can catch @pugofwar doing Tai Chi on the steps. If he gets winded, he will take a break and sip on Chai tea.

    All known reserves of Beulah red marble were used to construct much of the capitol building.

    Take the tour of the building. It's free, takes about 45 minutes and it's fascinating. You can then take the narrow staircase to the Dome and get great views of the city and the Rocky Mountains.

    Simon Salt · June 22, 2010

    Includes, early Colorado history, capitol construction, the lawmaking process, several stained glass windows, women's Gold tapestry, presidential portraits, and the Senate chambers.
