Remembering Outdoor Enthusiast Barb Evert

Listen Now

Barbara Evert was the very picture of an outdoorsy Coloradan. She road biked, climbed all the state's 14ers, and loved to backpack in foreign countries. Evert was a math teacher. She brought her classroom skills to the Colorado Mountain Club, where, for a time, she led the climbing school. Evert died last month at age 77 on a hike in the Grand Canyon. One of her long-time climbing partners was Karen Hickey, who spoke with Ryan Warner.
