Viewing Post for: Inca Trail 2015

Date: Monday, August 17
Location: Machu Pichu, and return to Cusco

Fantastic morning touring the world-famous Machu Pichu. Hard to explain the quality of the stonework and how extensive the complex is. Truly a wonder of the world. We rose early to arrive before the hordes that visit.

Then 8 of us climbed 2 hours and 2000 feet above the site to a mt peak, called Machu Pichu. Incredible. We were surrounded dedicated by mountains, glaciers and below us spread on the pinnacle of the hill was the whole city of Machu Picchu.

Wonderful lunch and then we boarded the train to Cusco. We switched to a bus for the last leg arriving very late.

Tomorrow is sad, we lose Chino our guide and Harry, Juri, and Mike start back to the USA.

Stay tuned for the rest of our adventures as we had to lake Titicaca. ....

Go glad you had this opportunity! Make lots of memories. Take it all in and store it in your mind. Because words can't describe it, and pictures can't do it justice. Miss you a ton. Enjoy the adventure and come home safe. PS - I got a text from Shelby still looking for daddy!

I think the mountain you are climbing sounds like a animated figure like Pikachu. Kaitlyn; Domenica and Alexis are at Woodward but there is a terrible tragedy - KT does not have cell service - I'm surprised she hasn't called for me to come get her :) I'm sure you are having an amazing time and taking lots of pictures.

Sounds like y'll had wonderful day and now back to Cusco or is it Cuzco for Rest/Relax time. I checked out Puno and island you are visiting next on google. The island is like a small small rock in the middle of lake bordering 2 countries with population of 2000 and get it... Men do the knitting and women spin and weave . Have fun adventure Meera is home today with mom/dad/ in Her own crib bed.

After your "cool" experience, it's going to be a shock to return to the heat and humidity. Expect it to be near 90 when you get here. Travel safely. We'll see you soon.

What an incredible experience! I am guessing the pictures will not do it justice. Can't wait to see them anyway. Wow! A train...well, that's just icing on the cake (chocolate, of course!). Safe travels home.

Sounds fantastic- were you one of the eight hikers? Must have been a truly magnificent sight! Nice that you got to ride on a train! Tell Jurij Peter wanted to know when you were getting back! Guess there. Is work for Jurij!
