A visit with Barbra Washburn

Caitlin and Colby, owners of AMS, recently visited Barbra Washburn during a visit back east for Thanksgiving. She recently turned 96 and showed no sign of slowing down. We chatted about her amazing life, her 60 years married to Bradford Washburn, and her first female ascents of Denali and Mt Hayes. In her typical New England manner she downplayed everything preferring to talk about Talkeetna and all her friends there.
