Nice sunset!  Sucess!

I hiked the two peaks in the afternoon with a sweet friend, nice sunset and cool, clean air...

Jennings Creek  Sucess!

This was my first climb of Shavano. I did it from Jennings Creek (before that route was closed)and got Tabeguache at the same time.

Second attempt  Sucess!

Started from just past Browns Lake and hit up Tab first, then over to Shavano. I liked this route much more than the standard.

Shavano  Sucess!

Meant to do both Shavano and Tabeguache, but only bagged Shavano. Nice hike. Will have to Tabeguache in 2008.

#18  Sucess!

Long trail. A nice day, we had a scare after making Tabaguache with lightning while trying to make it back over Shavano. Nice trail, good views to the South.

2nd time's a charm  Sucess!

This was my 2nd time at Shav/Tab. The first time was Oct 2006 when the winds turned terrible above treeline and my partner and I were forced to turn back.

So, met up with a guy from on the trail. I started at 7AM, but he didn't start until 7:30. Though it'd been sunny all day, we hit treeline and the clouds rolled in. A little depressed, we pressed on to the saddle where we met 2 other couples who were waiting out the fog. We pressed on, and immediately, the clouds cleared.

Anyway, summitted Shav, didn't eat much, then went over to Tab. Hit the saddle, and was floored by a wave of nausea. Sat down and thought about turning back. After a bit, decided to force myself up to the summit of Tab. Met my partner up there as well as another guy, who all thought I had altitude sickness, which was weird since I hadn't had altitude sickness in any of my 12 other 14er summits! So, I started eating an apple and felt great right away. PHEW! Guess I just was hypoglycemic.

Felt great the rest of the day and hiked down by 4PM.

East Slopes  Sucess!

About three and a half hours from the Blank Gulch Trailhead. It was all kinds of windy at the near the top, but a nice day and a pretty decent hike.

Shavano  Sucess!

Did Shavano and Tabeguache. Long day but well worth it!

Blank Gulch  Sucess!

I left the Blank Gulch trailhead at 6:50 AM and arrived at Shavano's summit at 9:45. There is no snow left in the Angel now. There were some ominous clouds off to the northwest, so there was some concern about whether the weather would cooperate for Tabeguache. Fortunately, it did. I took a short break there, and then headed over to Tabeguache.

feeding the rat  Sucess!

In his musings on mountaineering A. Alvarez describes climbing as an annual checkup, deliberately putting oneself in diffcult situations and refers to this as "feeding the rat". While climbing Shavano from Blank Cabin I actually fed the rat also....some hose insulation from under the hood of my car. Still made the summit and limped to the dealership in Salida.

East Slopes from Blank Gulch TH  Sucess!

shav and tab  Sucess!

Numbers 13 and 14 in one long day from blank gulch. Climbed them the day after having done oxford and belford. Beautiful mountains, and huge.

Shavano and Tab  Sucess!

Man, this was my hradest 14er yet considering it was my second climb. ha. Summited Shavano and Tab in one day. We did it pretty fast though. Round trip time was about 7 hours 50 mins.

Angel butt-kicking  Sucess!

Ascended and descended the Angel, snow conditions were ideal from treeline to the summit. Storms were moving in and prevented a traverse to Tabeguache

East slopes from main trailhead  Sucess!

Beautiful day for a climb! Took a little longer than I thought but that wasn't disappointing at all. FYI, Moonlight Pizza in Salida really hits the spot after a long day of climbing!
