Index Peaks in the background, which marks the boundary line between Wyoming and Montana.

From the captions on this group of photographs, I can tell that my grandfather visited Wyoming and Montana, seeing the "Great Divide," Yellowstone National Park, Index Peak, Beartooth Mountains and Lake, and Red Lodge.
