Opening Photos: The Bradford Washburn Museum of American Mountaineering

Posted on: February 18, 2008


Editor's Note: The Bradford Washburn Museum of American Mountaineering opened last weekend in Golden, CO. The museum will honor the late Bradford Washburn and America's many mountaineers. Besides his first ascents in Alaska, Washburn is also known for pioneering aerial photography and his groundbreaking cartography work. Thanks to Damien Gildea for providing the inauguration photos below; Jim Donini cut the ribbon.
