Salt Lake City, Utah, and Rock Springs, Wyoming, receive a considerable part of their supply of natural gas from the Eocene Wasatch formation, in the Hiawatha gas field, which spans the Wyoming-Colorado boundary line south of Rock Springs. Supplemental supplies of gas may be expected from a series of small anticlines that extend eastward from the Hiawatha field to the town of Baggs, Wyoming. Five of these anticlines are described here. The stratigraphy and regional structure are discussed briefly, and the accompanying map shows the areal geology and structural relations of the folds and faults.
