About The Author
Becky Lomax grew up camping. She cherishes fond memories of family camping trips in a yellow station wagon packed door-to-door with five raucous kids and their gear. Piled on air mattresses or cots in a canvas tent, she and her siblings woke each morning to their mom doling canned grapefruit and mandarin oranges into plastic camping bowls while their dad pumped the green two-burner Coleman stove to cook pancakes.
Like any camping family, they had their share of rain, mosquitoes, vehicle breakdowns, and siblings who strip-mined the chocolate from the gorp bag. Her brothers still swear they didn't put that frog in her sleeping bagbut she's not convinced.
Today, Becky's favorite kind of travel still involves backpacking, hiking, and campingespecially with her nieces and nephews. After 10 years as a hiking and backpacking guide in Glacier National Park, she now travels the Northern Rockies as a full-time professional outdoors writer and photographer. She uses her writing career as an excuse to camp, hike, mountain bike, kayak, and ski. Her favorite research involves wildlife: She has followed biologists into the field to band raptors and radio-collar bighorn sheep and grizzly bears.
Becky is also the author of Moon Glacier National Park, and her work has been published in various magazines, including Smithsonian, Backpacker, National Wildlife, Cross Country Skier, Montana Magazine, Montana Outdoors, and Northwest Travel.
