Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area covers ground (and water) in both Wyoming and Montana. And I must say, the extra drive to Devils Canyon Overlook in Montana is well worth your time.
Wildfire smoke was blowing in during my entire visit. Pops of blue sky showed up enough to make capturing photographs enjoyable.
