Machu Picchu Peru

As Island Hopper was on the "hard" this winter the crew had to find other pursuits. Kevin chose to visit Peru for two weeks with the Cincinnati Nature Center. The first week was aboard a river boat on the Amazon River shown below and the second week was in the Andes traveling towards the Inca Ruins at Machu Picchu. Quite the contrasts in a beautiful country.
The hike to Machu Picchu was worth the effort. The group took the train to the ruins, the other option being a four day hike on the Inca Trail traversing an altitude of over 13,000 feet.
