Machu

We start the day early, 4am early to hike up to Machu Picchu. We eat and dawn our ponchos that I am so thankful we picked up the day before, because it is raining. The hike to the entrance is rough. A trail going straight up, and switch backs all the way. Lucky for us our lungs aren’t getting squeezed from lack of oxygen, the town is only 2000 feet above sea level and Machu Picchu is only 4000, not so bad. The rain is steady and the clouds roam about the mountain making our view white. By later in the morning the clouds disappear and our ability to see the whole mountain and the village is incredible. We end our seven hour tour with walking a small part of the Inca Trail out to the sun gate where we received a spectacular view of the entire city and all the mountains that surround the village. It was fantastic sight to see!

Up up and away poncho!
