This was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life!. I have vertigo and during day three I was terrified; looking down the side of a mountain can take your breath away both figuratively and literally.
One portion of the trail reminded me of Snake Way from the Dragon Ball series and helped me realize that no matter how daunting the path ahead appears, it is only one small obstacle in life's journey.
I kept reminding myself that all the trials of the trail are not insurmountable and that the end will be worth everything. After Monkey Way, at the Sun Gate, I looked upon Machu Picchu and knew it was completely amazing.
