The Wyoming Department of Transportation reported a rock slide in Wind River canyon at roughly 4 a.m. Tuesday.

According to a statement on social media, the agency said a big rock and some smaller rocks fell near milepost 122.7.

WYDOT workers moved the smaller rocks to the edge of the roadway, according to the statement.

Next week, a private contractor will help break up the big rock early so it can be hauled out of the canyon.

And, WYDOT offers these fine words of advice:

"If you're fishing inside Wind River Canyon, think about where you park," the statement said. "As frost leaves the ground, Rocks are moving downhill."
