Barbara Bartmess is a single mother with three girls in 1979 when she meets Jim. After a whirwind romance, they marry. Their honeymoon in Twin Lakes, CO begins with a rainy hike in an area Jim had not been in a long while. This misadventure is the first of many in the beginning of their marriage, which has lasted 36 years.
Barbara Bartmess is an avid outdoorswoman, hunter and camper. She retired as an accountant too many years ago to count, and now takes joy in spending time with family, serving her church and writing her memoir.
