This happens every fall in between Sacramento and Bakersfield on I-5. I have never heard of it happening in Wyoming, correct me if I am wrong. I often am. In California it is called Tule Fog, can't remember why.

Random fact: I don't know why I know this seeing I live in TN... But because in marshy country there are alot of visible cattail and reeds (which are also known as 'tules'), the heavy fog in these parts of CA is usually called tule fog!
