from Blank Gulch  Sucess!

Took a chance on the weather to commit to both Shavano and Tabeguache, and lucked out! A long day, but a nice twofer with my daughter. Didn't find the storied sign, though, warning about McCoy Gulch...

Tubed down the Angle  Sucess!

Shavano via Tabeguache Peak was a great combination. Started at Jennings Creek Trailhead. Growing up in nearby Salida it was awesome to hike the 14er I saw every day. Shavano was my first, but I hiked it several times. We ended this combo by glissading down the Angel on inner tubes. F.Y.I. Tubes not easy to blow up when at altitude! ! !

Via East Slopes  Sucess!

We hiked at night through the forest and got to the summit very early. We spend over an hour on top and quite some time on the meadows below. When thunderstorm started brewing we headed down. Our slideshow from this day is here: Mount Shavano via East Slopes

One-armed angel  Sucess!

One of the nicest fourteener hikes, via the eastern slopes. One arm of the Angel had melted out. Had to save Tabeguache for another day.

A bit shocking  Sucess!

Planned on doing Shavano and Tabeguache, but people were getting shocked at the summit - obviously a sign to get down! A pleasant hike that I'll have to do again to hit Tabeguache!

Shavano from Tab  Sucess!

So i guess this one wasn't "official", I just walked over from Tabeguache. It was especially rewarding because the weather kept me from it the year prior.

Mount Shavano  Sucess!

My husband and I started the climb at 6:30 a.m. It wasn't too bad at first, but the higher we went, the more difficult it was. We finally made it to the top, didn't have a pen to sign the register, the dog cut his foot on a rock, it was snowing and we ran out of water. It is very rocky at the top. We had planned to summit Tebeguache on the same day, but due to our mishaps, we decided to save Tebeguache for another day.

Surprise on Shavano  Sucess!

Via Blank Gulch. Here I am in this jungle again. Guess who magically appears at the top? My fantasy lover mountain man...you gotta watch this guy...he's sneaky.
Couldn't get over to Tab...weird clouds and tired friends.

Via Blank Gulch  Sucess!

Quite a steep ascent, but all good. A nice trail, on a nice day. Slightly bummed that the angel was melted out already due to the hot weather. Blank Gulch TH has been improved lately, so probably for that reason is a lower start in elevation than in the GR book. Be prepared for close to 6,000 vert for the Shavano/Tab combo!
