Our early Machu Picchu hike morning started at 5am - up in time to shower and get ready for Inca Trail Reservations to pick us up and drop us at the Cusco train station. Destination: Machu Picchu ! Our tour guide (Fletcher) met us at the train station, where we started the most amazing day of our lives.
We started the Machu Picchu trail at km 104. Every archaeological site was explored thoroughly, and we even raced up some steps. Nothing could compare, though, to the site of Machu Picchu as the clouds separated in the afternoon sunlight. Hands down: best day of my life.
