Machu Picchu, Peru

~ Submitted by Anon

From Aguas Calientes we got on a bus and zigzagged up the steep side of a mountain spur that stuck like a jagged knife into the river.

The tropical vegetation steamed in through the windows even at this altitude of several thousand feet.

From what we had seen of the weather, we expected foreboding clouds and were not disappointed.

The face of Machu Picchu broods like a dark sentinel over the Urubamba as if dwelling on the sad fate of its inhabitants of yore.

Wow, classic shot! Wish I was there...

I am planning on going but can't until next January. Was the weather OK?

I really want to hike the Inca trail but don't know about it in the wet weather.
