La Paz, is considered correct.

Denver is the "Mile High City..." But incorrect. But, what most would guess.

It's also a city celebrating it's 400th anniversary soon, ( A "baby" by most Old World standards), but I'm glad you're playing by "Jacuzzi Rules...")

BTW, I thought Bolivia was a full-fledged country, (Whatever that means.....)

Full-fledged country? I am not english speaking, haven't got a clue what that means LOL.

Anyway, in which state is that capital? That makes it still difficult for me;)

Reno maybe, Billings?

I'm not sure i've ever come across somebody who calls themselves a 'world traveller', and have rarely even heard the phrase before let alone know what it means!

Incidentally, i've an idea the highest capital is Santa Fe, although my brain always wants to say Cheyenne even though I know its lower

You're good Gelli, I have to admit;)
Stepping out of the Jacuzzi, I found this on the net:

Santa Fe is located at 7,000 feet (2134 m) above sea level, making it the highest state capital in the United States. The highest state capitals are:

Santa Fe, New Mexico - 7,000 ft (2134 m) right through the center of the Capitol building
Cheyenne, Wyoming - 6,097 ft (1858 m)
Denver, Colorado - 5,280 ft (1609 m)
Carson City, Nevada - 4,687 ft (1429 m)
Salt Lake City, Utah - 4,560 ft (1390 m)
Helena, Montana - 4,125 ft (1257 m)

Would you expect anything less from a cartographer? Okay, he's never ben to the US... But, he's one that is definitely considered (by others on this site) as a "world traveler". Though Rich probably has other terms for his adventures... ;)

Santa fe, of course, is correct.

And playing by the same, "Jacuzzi Rules", If you asked me about a European capitol, with the highest elevation, I would guess Bern, Switzerland..Am I really dumb, at least close? (A "cartographer", that totally craps me up!) I've actually flown with one of those, they are DareDevils! LOL!

It's generally called stupidity

A flying cartographer? That really is an odd idea. And as for cartographers being DareDevils? Who the heck did you meet - most of us spend their times chained to desks playing with large databases and even larger plotters.

Highest European capital? Andorra la velle, at a guess, but I don't know. It's not something that tends to be asked a much as highest state or world capital!

No seriously, I flew with an arial cartophogher who worked for the US Government! (Makes sense to me...) We skimmed over trees and waved at those below us. I almost felt like a could reach their hands.

My sister was dating him, and she was amazed they did not have coffee at the office, (it's the little things that really get you, isn't it?) His answer was,; "Can you imagine a bill passing through Congress for "FREE" coffee for ALL Federal Employees? Guess he did have a point there....
