Colorado State Capitol Virtual Tour
The view from the dome is unforgettable. To the northwest can be seen Longs Peak, 50 miles away. To the southwest is the majestic Pikes Peak and to the west is Mount Evans and its snowcapped companions. Large brass markers will help the visitor identify the mountains afforded by this spectacular view. A newspaper man said, "No vaster, sublimer view was ever spread out before the eye of sinful man than that which sweeps away into snow and clouds from the West Portico of the Capitol."
