 1st report ever - Shavano from Blank Gulch   

Well, this is my first report ever. I just moved back to Denver from Georgia a few weeks ago. Glad to be back!! I came out from Arkansas to do my first 14er back in 1988. I was 14 then, and I fell in love with the mountians. My buddy got me onto, and now I am hooked.

We left TH around 6:15 (about 1 1/2 hours too late). Trail was wide open, clear sailing all the way. Pretty steep for my first climb since leaving the humidity of the south. The angel's left arm is missing though. So if someone took it, please return it. Did not go over to Tab......just too damn hot. Pics to add soon.

Looking forward to many more

I gotta get me one of these trucks or whatever it is!!
