Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu After four days of hiking, we climbed up our last 50 steps towards the Sun Gate to find Machu Picchu completely socked in with clouds.  Several hours later the clouds began to lift eventually revealing the famous site.  Looking back on it, we're glad that we didn't have the crystal clear day that we hoped for.  The rain, mist and wisps of clouds added to the already dramatic place of Machu Picchu.

We have consistantly read that Machu Picchu has a unique feel and an energy about it.  After being there, we now know what this energy feels like.  It's hard to describe, but once there, you know that Machu Picchu is a very special place.  There is no dispute from us why Machu Picchu is one of the seven new wonders of the world.
