Laramie, a river of North America, rises near the North Park, Colorado, runs northward through Albany County, then eastward through a county in Wyoming which is calied from it, and, after a course of some 200 miles, enters the Plata at Fort Laramie. The Laramie Plains are a fertile plateau sixty miles long in Albany and Carbon counties, Wyoming. They are enclosed on all sides by high mountains, and are themselves 7,500 feet above the sea-level. They are almost treeless, and afford rich pasture. The plains are bounded on the E. and N.E. by the Laramie Mountains, the highest peak of which is about 10,000 feet in height.
