About the Author

Becky Lomax grew up hiking, camping, and skiing in Olympic National Park, North Cascades National Park, and Mt. Rainier National Park (where her dad used to serve as a ranger). During college, she worked summers in Glacier National Park. After teaching high school English for many years outside Seattle, she and her husband moved to Montana, where she served as a hiking and backpacking guide in Glacier, worked at a ski resort, and began to write about the outdoors. She relishes visiting national parks to hike, bike, backpack, kayak, and raft. Through her writing, she advocates for conserving wild places for their unique attributes and the renewal they bring to humans. She has written about hiking trails, historic lodges and roads, camping, paddling, skiing, bicycling, wildlife, wildflowers, birds, and climate change. For magazine stories, she has tagged along with biologists into the field to radio collar bighorn sheep and grizzly bears, even touching the bear's claws and smelling its fur to discover its earthy scent. Becky is the author of the bestselling Moon USA National Parks, and has published stories in several national travel magazines including Smithsonian and Backpacker. She has also authored Moon Glacier National Park and Moon U.S. & Canadian Rockies Road Trip.

Reviews

"Moon handbooks are always a pleasure to read. The writing is crisp, the research impressive, and the recommendations practical and down to earth."--Chicago Tribune
"The books are more easily readable than other guides. The main attractions are also marked with a special icon and sidebars and boxes highlight special information, making the Moon handbooks one of the most user-friendly guides in terms of visual appeal and organization...the quality is uniformly excellent."--Transitions Abroad
"Far from narrow minded, each Moon travel guide gives itinerary options for a variety of travelers' budgets--from frugal to lavish. They make books catering to those who love the outdoors, those who have limited time, those staying exclusively in cities and those who've fully committed to living abroad. In all, they have hundreds of titles, ranging Bermuda to Budapest, that'll teach you to embrace a new culture."--Gear Patrol, "The Best Travel Guidebooks for Every Journey"
"Moon handbooks have become known as well-written and exceptionally informative guides."--The New York Times
"Moon guides are perfect for the relaxed road tripper or outdoor explorer." --No Small Plan
"Moon handbooks are known for cannily combining logistical information with cultural background of a country or state."--Los Angeles Times
