Today I’d like to have an essay about the population in the Rocky Mountains.
I arranged that in the following points
First Important cities
Third the history of the population
And fourth industry
How you already know the Rocky Mountains are going through the five states Montana Idaho Wyoming Colorado and New Mexico
The most important cities in these states which are in the Rocky Mountains are:
Missoula with less than 62.000 inhabitants Helena with more than 27.000 inhabitants
Idaho Falls with ca. 52.000 inhabitants and Pocatello with actually the same number of inhabitants
Laramie with round 26.000 inhabitants
Denver with more than 560.000 and Colorado springs with almost 370.000
Santa Fe with ca 68.000 inhabitants, Las Vegas with almost 15.000 inhabitants and last Albuquerque with 480.000 inhabitants
When you look at the map you will see that actually all of the cities are built at rivers.
And you’ll see that here in the east there are much more and bigger cities.
With an average of four people per square kilometre the population in the Rocky Mountains isn’t very high and there aren’t many cities with more than 50.000 inhabitants.
