About the Author Becky Lomax first saw the northern lights dancing green and white in Yellowstone's night sky. Yellowstone is also the first place she heard elk bugle in fall, cross-country skied past steaming hot springs and geysers, drove up the road in April inside a herd of migrating bison, and relished the colors of thermophiles. No matter what season, Yellowstone and Grand Teton captivate her. After teaching high school English for many years outside Seattle, she and her husband moved to Montana, where she served as hiking and backpacking guide, worked at a ski resort, and begin to write about the outdoors. She has spent more than two decades exploring the Northern Rockies, including Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, as her backyard. 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, 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 his fur to discover its earthy scent. She serves as the western editor for OnTheSnow.com, reporting on the news for ski resorts. She writes frequently for regional newspapers and magazines and has published stories in national travel magazines, Smithsonian, and Backpacker. She authored Moon Glacier National Park and Moon Montana, Wyoming, & Idaho Camping.
