Almost there… Machu Picchu

 

Getting close to the goal: Machu Picchu. After kicking butt and making it up Dead Woman’s Pass, our next day was our longest day hiking. We were rewarded throughout the day with amazing views.

Stunning. And the mist adds to the history and allure of the hike.

Check out the “stairs” we had to climb to get to this site.

Gotta be sure-footed to navigate these stairs!
