Rock Springs is a city in Sweetwater County, Wyoming, United States. The population was 23,036 at the 2010 census, making it the 4th most populated city in the state of Wyoming.
Rock Springs is known as the Home of 56 Nationalities because of the influx of immigrants from all over the world who came to work in the coal mines that supplied the fuel to power the steam engines of the Union Pacific Railroad. The city's rich cultural heritage is celebrated each summer on International Day, a festival where the foods, costumes, and traditions of residents' ancestors are recreated and enjoyed at Bunning Park in downtown Rock Springs.
Rock Springs is the site of Western Wyoming Community College and Wyoming's Big Show, a yearly event with a carnival and concerts which is held at the Sweetwater County Events Complex.
The Petroglyphs North of Rock Springs were carved by the ancestors of present Plains and Great Basin Native American People.
Visitors enjoy hiking, boating, fishing, windsurfing, camping, backpacking, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling within Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area.
One of the primary locations for wild horses in Wyoming is the Red Desert lying between Rawlins and Rock Springs. On the western edge is the north of Wamsutter and south of Tipton made famous by Butch Cassidy and his gang is Laney rim, sometime called Delaney Rim, an escarpment possibly named after an early rancher William Laney who proved up his homestead in 1891.
The Leucite Hills of southwestern Wyoming are the remains of volcanic flows from Pleistocene age eruptions. The presence of the Leucite Hills has created a gap through which the prevailing westerly winds funnel. These winds are strong enough to carry sand and gravel. As the winds blow through the Leucite Hills, the sand collects in large sand dunes. These dunes can reach heights of over 100 feet and run for over 100 miles from west to east.
