Situated northwest of Laramie, Wyoming on Highway 30 alongside the Union Pacific Railroad is the community of Rock River. This area is in the heart of the Wyoming High Plains with the rugged territory and plains that support herds of antelope. The primary economic activity here includes cattle ranching and farming wheat, corn, and sunflowers. Dinosaurs once roamed this vast state and there is much proof at Como Bluff nearby east of Medicine Bow. Como Bluff was the site of one of the first major discoveries of dinosaur remains in the world! The area received notoriety because of the immense number of bones found and their near-perfect preservation.
