ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. (AP) - The U.S. Bureau of Land Management says it will temporarily prohibit vehicles on a mountain northeast of Rock Springs this spring.

The idea is to protect elk and deer while they’re calving. Steamboat Mountain will be closed to vehicles between May 1 and June 30.

The closure happens every spring and includes both sides of Steamboat Rim as well as Johnson, LaFonte and Box canyons.
