  • Santa Fe, New Mexico correct

    The correct answer is: A! You might assume Denver has the highest altitude, but there are actually two capitals ahead of it. Denver comes in at 5,280 ft, Cheyenne is at 6,097 ft and Santa Fe is the highest at 7,000 ft above sea level. Santa Fe is the fourth-largest city in New Mexico, and also happens to be the oldest capital city in America.
