Inca Trail | Machu Picchu | Dead Woman's Pass

When life gives you lemons...

Except for a few clips in the early morning, I lost all the footage of this day. But I have pictures, Good morning.

 

Today is an uphill climb for the majority of the day. All the way up across the pass. The path turned to rocky, narrow steps by a stream in the thick jungle.

 

The views of the Andes were simply breathtaking. Can you spot this morning’s camp?

 

My iliotibial band on my right leg started to bother me, and I was only halfway up. Every step felt like my heart was about to burst out of my chest. But in the end, it was worth it. At 14,000 feet, dead woman’s pass is the highest point of the trek.

 

The temperature drastically dropped, and the wind didn’t help. Came down the other side of the pass and my leg really started to bother me.

 

I reached camp after 7 hours of walking and had Lomo saltado for dinner. Best way to close the day.
