Written by a local hiking guide whose love affair with the park spans decades, Moon Glacier National Park uncovers the best ways to experience the rugged Crown of the Continent. You'll find where to smother your taste buds with huckleberry pie, where to spot a glacier, where to spy grizzly bears, where to swim with icebergs, and where to run your fingers over some of North America's oldest rock formations. Moon Glacier National Park and Becky Lomax help you have a truly personal experience.

Suggested travel strategies and lists of must-see sights provide you with real insights so you can decide where you should go, stay, and eat—without hassles or regrets. Becky's travel strategies include One Day in Glacier, The Glacier Smorgasbord (an eight-day overview), Wildlife Watching, Getting Away From it All, Wildflower Wonders, and Top Ten Day Hikes.

Becky details where to trek, climb, mountain bike, swim, kayak, and relax between glaciers or towering mountains. Complete with maps, photographs, illustrations, and special emphasis on leading destinations such as Going-to-the-Sun Road, Logan Pass, Grinnell Glacier, Many Glacier Hotel, Granite Park Chalet, Lake McDonald, and Waterton National Park. Moon Glacier National Park has all the tools for you to create your own trip.

About the Author:

Becky Lomax first saw Glacier National Park at three years old, when her parents took her to visit friends in Two Medicine. After that first taste, the park lured her back again and again.

During college, Becky worked two summers in the Glacier Park Lodge kitchen, sitting in the walk-in cooler on hot days to peel carrots. While the sum total of her earning tallied less than 300 that first summer, she walked away having hiked nearly 300 miles of the park's trails.

After working as a high school English teacher for many years outside Seattle, Becky and her husband moved to Whitefish, adjacent to Glacier. She worked for a decade as a hiking and backpacking guide, leading many first-time Glacier visitors to her favorite haunts—Gunsight Pass, Fifty Mountain, and Cosley Lake. She also served on staff at Granite Park Chalet, reveling in seeing wolverines and bagging the peaks nearby in her time off.

Becky now serves as the western editor for OnTheSnow.com, reporting on the news for ski resorts. She also writes frequently for regional newspapers and magazines, and has published stories in various national travel magazines, including Smithsonian and Backpacker.
