Meet an Expert: Montana, USA

Montana Travel
by Hal Amen Jun 29, 2009
Matador’s destination experts are here to help and ready to connect. For questions on the Big Sky State, this is the guy you want to ask.

Eric Warren, a.k.a. advenjunkie, has spent the past 25 years digging deep into Montana.

He’s lived in Missoula, Big Sky, Bozeman, and Billings and has extensively explored Yellowstone National Park, Glacier National Park, the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness, the Bitterroot Wilderness, and most other Montana locations.

He’s also an avid mountain biker, rock climber, surfer, and cross-country skier, which isn’t surprising given all the adventure opportunities up for grabs under Big Skies.

Here’s a little more on Eric:

About me: I’m a photographer and writer specializing in adventure and travel. I also do commercial photographic work and write fiction.

Tunes I rock out to: Everything from The Pixies to Tool to Bach to Jem. I’ve been playing a lot of Beethoven lately…

I want to make a difference by: Showing the world through my lens and writing essays/stories either funny or thought provoking that get people moving — either out their doors or deeper into their lives.

As you may know, Matador has put together one of the most comprehensive resources on Montana you’ll find anywhere, including locals’ recommendations for trails, rivers, mountains, restaurants, and bars.

Eric authored a number of these articles, including Bike Touring Montana: Classic Big Sky Rides and 9 Montana Backpacking Trips That Will Blow Your Mind.

You can check out his photography on Flickr, and shoot him all your Montana questions via his Matador profile.
