Peru & Machu Picchu
A few of about 60 porters, cooks & guides who made it possible for the 21 of us to hike the Inca Trail in relative comfort. The cook is in the white hat on the left. This is our last, and the hardest day for some. We will hike 8.2 miles, and 4,000' down. The porters, however, must hike 18 miles because they are no longer allowed to enter the main part of Machu Picchu.
