Mount Shavano, elevation 14,235 ft (4,339 m), is a fourteener in the Sawatch Range of Colorado. It is the 17th highest peak in Colorado and a near-neighbor to Tabeguache Peak. The mountain lies just east of the Continental Divide and just west of the Arkansas River rising 7,200 feet above the town of Salida in Chaffee County to the southeast. Mount Shavano lies in the south-central part of the Sawatch Range, north of Mount Ouray and Mount Chipeta and south of the Collegiate Peaks (including Mount Princeton, Mount Harvard, and Mount Yale). Mount Shavano is famous for the Angel of Shavano, a snow formation in the image of an angel that emerges on the east face of the mountain during snow melt each spring.
