View from the seat
The hike to this specatacular point gains a lot of altitude on a rugged and very old trail, only a couple miles long. It weaves up the side of the mountain, at times using ancient Incan steps, and finally through a tight boulder heap at the top. The ruined city of Macchu Picchu lies below with its terraced crops dropping suddenly to the roiling Urubamba. 8k meter peaks in the distance. Photo taken in June 2000, clearly before I considered myself a climber. Just look at those flimsy forearms.
