 Does that count as 3?   

Well I think the best way to describe this trip is that God was really looking out for me. Some friends and I left the springs around 4:30am and got the the trailhead at around 7:15ish and hit the trail by about 7:30. First off, if you have never done this combo before, please be prepared for a semi-hard climb and pack plenty of water. The hills that I encountered we some of the most steep and rock that I have yet to encounter, which might not be saying much but still. I summited in about 3 hours and 15 min and spent probably around 30 min at the top. I then left my group(they we from VA and were not feeling the second one), and joined another lady and took on Tabeguache. It took about 1.5 hours to do all of Tabeguache and then get back to the top of Shavano and then headed back down. The lady and I ended right at 3pm and not a moment too soon because the storms were quick to follow. Overall the trail was in good condition and was clear of all the trees and the road was in good shape as well.

It's your list...     07/29/2012 18:43
Count it however you'd like to count it.

Having said that, I wouldn't count Shavano twice.
