we've reached our first campsite. the porters, who despite carrying over 4x the load we carry, and leaving after us, have reached the campsite ahead of us and begun unpacking.

Image

entire staff. dont mind the fact the chef is picking his nose, the food was delicious. especially those raisins...
Image

extra staff member. he was a sweet doggy too, i was petting him and then he started following me around the camp.

dead woman's pass (we'll be descending to the right)
Image

we are winnars!
Image

the descent. you'd think it'd be easier, but it was just as nasty trying to control your speed on the uneven rocky path surface. my knees got pretty screwed up.

April 24
i'm at the bottom of the descent, the campsite behind me, and tall waterfalls behind that.
Image

there was a lot of fog coming from the bottom of the valley too. it was like a train of clouds chuggin up the side of the mountain.
Image

a watchtower, not particularly effective in the fog
Image

moar stairs to climb. /grumble

there were some nifty flowers on this rock face.

runkuraqay ruins. an incan military post. i donno how the spanish conquered it, only because it'd be hell to climb up here in plated armor.
Image

Image

i started glowing after drinking the local water...

fog makes a good backdrop.

the day we all've been waiting for. machu picchu day!

we rose at 4am in order to reach the sun's gate (landmark where machu picchu first becomes visible on the Inca trail) by sunrise.

at sun's gate:
the sun's beginning to hit our destined site
Image

Image

we were happy bedheads
Image

machu picchu again, from slightly closer
