14er #5. I climbed Tabeguache from the Jennings Creek TH despite the warnings. I did not consider the erosion concerns to be significant until the way back down as I was obviously riding the pea gravel down the trail. The worst part of the hike though was the rough road driving to the TH. I met a guy from Gunnison on the trail whose father I knew. Small world! We saw five mountain goats traverse below us on our way up. For this day, I was the only person from the Jennings Creek side to venture on to Shavano, and I ended up cutting the weather pretty close as my batteries were running low with the reclimb of Tabeguache. Traversing to Shavano is a two hour+ commitment.
