The Inca Trail in Peru
MrC spent part of the winter break in Peru hiking the 48 km Inca Trail. The 4 day trek ended at Machu Picchu, the fabled "lost" city of the Incas high in the Andes Mountains. The highest point in the trail was "Dead Woman's Pass" at 13, 700 feet. The air was thin with much less oxygen. We had clear days for most of the hiking, but our last day's hike to Machu Picchu was in a downpour! Click on the picture above to view the photo gallery.
