Description 

A south facing rock group of 300'Towers Wall and a west facing 40'-100' ridge are situated north of the North Laramie River where the river cuts thru the WY Front Range. Before the 1950's the Rainbow Fishing Camp was in business at the North Laramie River Bottom where these rocks are. The abandoned buildings were somewhat intact until the forest fire of 2012. One can still find some traces of these structures. At that time of the active fishing camp drive in access was down Owen Creek from the south thru some private land no longer open to the public.
