A 360 degree view from Dead Woman’s pass. Yeah, I know it’s just a video shot with an iPhone. I wanted a way to combine the views with the wind. If you haven’t been there it probably doesn’t look like much. If you have, enjoy! I know I did.
The view from 4,215 meters above sea level. With the fog all you really see is what you accomplished. And it looks pretty damn good.
So close and yet so far away. This was the point of no return for me. I wanted to give up and go home so badly. I’m not sure exactly how i would get home but when you are tired and can’t breathe, you aren’t always logical. I took a picture so i would never forget the moment i almost gave up on myself. How’s that for inspiration?
The beginning of day two on the Inca Trail which is also the hardest day. In one day we will hike a 1,000 meters to 4,215 meters above sea level. And then we get to back down. Somewhere between the mountain peeks in the second photo is where we are actually headed…
My favorite pictures from day one on the Inca Trail.
Weigh in is no joke! If you thought you could sneak an extra pound or two in your bag you are so, so wrong. Our bags were weighed on a hand scale before being packed up with this porter. Then all the porters have to weigh them again with park rangers before they are allowed on the Inca Trail.
