Welcome the land of fire and ice. Moon Yellowstone and Grand Teton shows you what you need to know to plan the perfect trip for you. Explore the geysers and vivid cauldrons of acid and water created by the supervolcano hidden under the mountainous greenery and alien beauty of Yellowstone National Park, and marvel at the mountainous spires of the Rockies and the glacier-smoothed lakes and canyons of Grand Teton National Park. Along with trip ideas like “One Day in Yellowstone” and “Winter Fun”, Lomax includes suggestions for the best places to spot elk, bison, bears, and wolves, and tips on which hikes have the most stunning views.
"My husband and I just visited Yellowstone and Tetons and of all the maps and everything we had, we used this the most! Packed with info on everything. We loved the maps and the descriptions of places we could visit. Made our trip more enjoyable."

Glacier National Park, now in its sixth edition, consistently ranks high as one of the best all-inclusive travel books for Glacier. You’ll find where to spot a glacier, spy grizzly bears, swim with icebergs, cast lines for native trout, smother taste buds with huckleberry pie, ride horseback, and run your fingers over some of North America’s oldest rock formations. Organized around how visitors use the park, the book connects recreation, lodging, and logistics for each region. With lodging, camping, and dining recommended for each area, visitors can plan day trips or set up base camps for one night to a week. Because of grizzlies, the book also includes how to camp, fish, and hike where humans are not top on the food chain.
"The Moon Handbooks guide for Glacier National Park was one of just a few books I could find when searching for help planning a recent trip there. While there may not be many options, it turns out that none were needed because everything I needed was right here."
