This ruin right here was…

Photo Caption: This ruin right here was my ultimate destination on trail… and other than 3 other people with me, I had the entire place to myself… Winay Wayna or “Forever Young” is a short walk from the final night’s camp location and I rushed to make it here after a 9 mile tough hike down some very steep stairs… this is at least 4 miles from Machu Picchu and not a ruin that many visit from either side… most coming off the Inca Trail are too tired to take the extra walk once they get to camp, and the stairs coming from Machu Picchu are pretty intense so most never make it past the Sun Gate… most also don’t really know of this location’s existence because it doesn’t make it on to social media… I wanted to shoot the stars here that night and I also was just enthralled with the vastness of this ruin that was so intact and so untraveled…

In discussing the trip with my friends this morning, we all agree, it’s the Journey, not the destination and the journey to Machu Picchu was so incredibly gorgeous and memorable that arriving to Peru’s Disneyland was actually somewhat of a disappointment… it was Machu Picchu that drew me to Peru, but it was the rest of my adventures that made me fall in love…

please check out @valenciatravelcusco if you want to do the trail (which i would suggest 150 times out of 100 rather than taking the bus to Machu Picchu). They didn’t pay me to say that, I paid for my entire trip.. they were just that great of a tour company; the staff and food were a vip experience I didn’t expect!! In fact, we loved our porters so much all 16 in our group overtipped, and donated tons of gear and clothes to them to try and hopefully help out their families and make their treks easier….
