A few years ago I took a trip to Peru. I hiked for five days to get to Machu Picchu and it was the most difficult thing I have ever done. I have never been so miserable as I was in the cold, at a much higher altitude than I am used to, trying to sleep and failing. And yet I feel so lucky to have pushed myself to do it, because I have never seen anything so beautiful as the Peruvian mountains that I trekked over. Machu Picchu was breathtaking and absolutely magical. I wanted to share a couple pictures to give you a taste of what I saw.
