Matt Mahoney's 2001 Colorado Vacation
Shavano, TabeguacheAug. 9, 2001. I had camped near Blank Cabin at 9800 ft., the finish of Nolan's 14 at the base of Shavano (14,229 ft), and was awakened by a herd of cattle walking past my tent. I met with Ginny LaForme, John Robinson, and Dennis Herr. At the start of the climb, a sign warned:
Climbing Shavano in the fog.
Ginny and me on the summit of Shavano, before heading for Tabeguache.
