So, after 8 years ago writing this (of our second and this time successful attempt at the motherlode):

"We did it!!!! Wahoo!!!!! Hey, did any of you guys happen to see my mind? I lost it somewhere between peaks 2 & 3....... I feel like someone beat me up, and I look like someone put me through a paper shredder. And NOW I can truly say, I will be happy just looking at that place from a distance, knowing I conquered it! Good job everyone!!!!"

and swearing I'd never do that hike again, here I went. Why? No one knows. And I can TRULY say now that the motherlode will never see me again! :lol:

With a 30% chance of rain, we had to make a group decision whether to go ahead with this madness or not. We said we'd decide when we got atop of Browns and were able to look around. Nothing looked too threatening, so we decided to chance it. Thank God this time I had some awesome peeps with me. Mark is my rock and helped me survive the mind boggling down climbs (my nemesis), and Karl for his amazing memory and route finding skills! Julie and Jeremy were a pleasure to have along. All those damn rock climbers make everything look easy!

We totally lucked out with the weather. Only got spit on a couple times, and it was once we were back on trail. Then it started raining when we got to the parking lot - how LUCKY is that??!! :D :D :D

I hate pants!
