Freelance writer and editor Carter G. Walker introduces you to the best of Wyoming, from the beauty of Yellowstone National Park to the art scene and high style of Jackson Hole and Cody. Walker has plenty of unique trip ideas to offer, including Where the Wild Things Are and Small Town Rodeos: The Biggest Parties in the West. Whether you're looking to climb Devils Tower or to spot a moose in Grand Teton National Park, "Moon Wyoming" gives you the tools you need to create a more personal and memorable experience.
From the time she was eight years old, Carter G. Walker made annual family trips to a Wyoming dude ranch, where she fell in love with purple mountain majesties and all things equine. After she graduated early from Colgate University in Hamilton, New York, with an English literature degree, Carter landed, sight unseen, in Bozeman, Montana, and made the West her home. In two decades as a Westerner, Carter has stoked the flames of her love affair by balancing her intellectual need to tell stories with her physical yearning to explore wild places. She has worked as a wilderness guide in Montana and Wyoming; as a naturalist guide in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks; as a wildland and structure firefighter and EMT; and as a publisher, editor, and freelance writer. She is currently the editor of "Western Art & Architecture" and a contributing editor to "Big Sky Journal." She continues to travel the backroads and little-known parts of the West as fodder for countless magazine features and food for her soul. In 2002, after a ski trip to the north pole was unexpectedly and serendipitously re-routed through the archipelago of Svalbard, Carter met and married Bjorn Saeteren, an absolute Viking and her hero when it came to the pursuit of adventure. The couple lives with their two adventuresome daughters, Sissel and Siri--both champion road warriors and cowgirls at heart--in Bozeman, Montana.
