Arriving at the gate at 6:30am, I was extremley excited to see and explore this amazing place. I have been planning this trip for over ten years and the moment was finally here!
After entering, the entire mountain range and ruins were covered in a white mist. I was a little disappointed since I wanted to capture the beauty surrounding me on film but it was impossible through this very thick cloud. As the sun rose , the mist started to dissipate and the majesty that is Machu Picchu revealed it's self to me like the start of a magic show. After about 30 minutes the mist was completely gone and only blue skies remained. Simply Amazing!
Macchu Picchu is not only one of the world's most sought after tourist sites; it is also a nearby mountain you can hike up for incredible views. The hike is steep, but the vies you get of the surrounding landscape make every drop of sweat worth it.
