Well I thought I’d try something different with Denver! I’ve only flown in once and I had no idea that it was on the EDGE of the Rocky Mountains. I was shocked to see the endless FLAT expanse of the plains to the east of Denver. So I’d say you’d want to see the mountains no matter what. It all depends on how the planes are landing that day, but if I figured that out in advance, I’d choose the side with the mountain view. Those mountains are awe inspiring to someone who grew up on the Atlantic Ocean.
