So on my way home from Peru I had an over night layover in Mexico City... So I rented a pod in the airport to sleep in... I felt like I was sleeping at a Star Wars hotel or Star Trek or something... video coming soon!! —— . . . . . #phototravel #phototraveling #photographer #photographers #photolife #lifeofatraveler #adventurelife #adventurelovers #adventurer #adventuring #adventurous #adventures #adventuring #adventurevisuals #adventureculture #adventurehunt #adventureisoutthere #adventurethatislife #adventureseeker #adventureclub #adventurealways #adventureawaits #adventurealliance #adventureanywhere #adventureaddict #adventuregram #adventurepic #adventure_culture #adventuretrip #adventuregirl #adventuregirls

Hiking the Inca Trail with…

Hiking the Inca Trail with all its history and culture was amazing... sitting on the Inca Trail with new friends under the stars was breathtaking!! We took these on Thursday night of our trek which was Day 2 for us... 7 others joined me, 3 from our group and 4 of the staff to lay down on the path and look up at the stars... While the skies were mostly clear, massive lightning storms could be seen by their flashes of light behind mountains in two different directions.. Thank you to Alex and Rene of @ValenciaTravelCusco for making my photography a priority like they did... shooting the night sky on the trek was VERY important to me so therefore they made it important to them... it only seems right as the Incan people used the sun and the stars in the way they built their buildings and temples... thank you also @ac8c @alecarreras and our new friend, Michael for joining me that night! —- if you want information on how I shot this image, please head to @tracyleephotos and read about it! —— #tracylee #tracyguns #tracyleephoto #tracyleephotos #mstracylee #tracyleephotography #limaperu #livealifeworthliving #livelifelove #livelifetothefullest #livelife #adventureismydrug #adventureislife #adventuretime #adventurelife #adventureofalifetime #cuscoperu #machupicchu #girlstrip #valenciatravel #valenciatravelcusco #winaywayna

Shooting the stars on the…

Shooting the stars on the Inca Trail was of high priority to me, but unfortunately the almost full moon was in the rising Milky Way galactic center every night on trail except my last night; even then it was chasing her by 30 minutes.. in spite of that, I dragged friends and staff out every single night to shoot and PRAYED that the clouds would stay back.. As far as I’d seen and been told, the clouds are a prominent feature of the Andes Mountains, especially in areas dubbed “The Cloud Forest”... —- This shot was taken directly on the Inca Trail outside of our camp after the hardest day of hiking up to 14k ft; I can’t believe that 8 of us were up for this side adventure after the difficulty of the day.. —— The Inca Trail lined up with where the Milky Way would be rising as well as the waterfall, so I set up here and started focusing while everyone else laid on their backs on the stones of the world famous pathway.. We stared at the most stars I had ever seen; The lack of light pollution made it possible to see an INSANE amount of stars! Periodically we saw flashes of light from 2 different directions from two different storms; it stayed cloudless for over an hour where we were!! —- I was really excited to see a different night sky than I am used to as well... while this shot doesn’t have the Galactic Center in it, the appearance of the southern cross above the horizon and this end of the MW was an absolute treat! What an epic adventure!!! —— This is 10 images stacked for the sky, and 5 long exposure images for the foreground.. we used a Lumecube.com/160.html (use code TRACYLEE for free US shipping) to light up the tree and people for the portraits I also shot of my friends... ——- Foreground 5 images stacked in PS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 4 minutes - Sky and trees 10 images stacked in SLS for NR ISO 6400 F2.8 15 seconds —— Processed in LR & PS @tokinausa 16-28 at 16mm @slikusa CF-522 lite @canonusa 6DMK1 —— #tracylee #tracyleephotos #tracyleephotography #slikusa #canonusa #tokinausa #canonbringit #teamcanon #teamtokina #teamslik #shootslik #sliktripods #amazingearth #natgeo #litbylume #lumecube #capture4cubes #machupicchu #incatrail #cuscoperu #epicjourneycontest

This ruin right here was…

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.... —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #machupicchu #cuscoperu #peru #winaywayna #incatrail #cuzco #rainbowmountain

I made it!!!! 26 miles…

I made it!!!! 26 miles of Inca trail in some extremely rough terrain in all different climates and elevations between 7k ft and 14k ft... I felt like I wanted to die in some places along it but my mind kept me going when my body wasn’t keeping up... there’s NO way I could have done this trek without the staff and help of @ValenciaTravelCusco... from the porters who carried our gear, the cooks that prepared incredible meals, and the guides that catered to our every need.. it was way over the top to what I’m used to when it comes to backpacking, but it was truly a VIP experience... —— 12 of us in our group, plus 4 more we didn’t know made the trekkers a FUN group of 16... I got to do my favorite EVERY night, shoot the stars thanks to our guide, Alex making sure that it happened, including 2 nights shooting in Inca ruins and 1 night on the actual Inca Trail along the way...... thank you also to @roxannelavin for planning and putting the group together!!! Sorry guys; you’re gonna see a lot of Peru photos in the next couple week... —— Thank you @alecarreras for the photo! —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet

Today is day 3 on the Inca trail and I have a little phone service at the top of a mountain overlooking Machu Picchu Mountain, and Aguas calientes so I thought I would post this picture from Sayamarca this morning... the weather has been absolutely amazing; we had a tiny bit of rain this afternoon but it stopped pretty quickly... the trail is rough but breathtakingly beautiful and I can’t wait to see the last ruins today, Winay Wayna... to me they might be the highlight of my trip next to Machu Picchu itself...I have so many photos and videos that don’t even do this place justice... @valenciatravelcusco has been a ridiculously fantastic tour company and I don’t think I would have made this journey successfully if it weren’t for their staff!! stay tuned... thank you @ac8c for the photo!

We’re about 3 miles in and the weather is amazing!!!! The views are so beautiful and we’re already almost halfway through our first day hike... I’m really looking forward to getting to camp and scoping out some shots for tonight... I’m hoping for the amazing weather to continue but here in the Andes, you never know... tomorrow is the serious day, and I expect my phone service to end soon... —— Thank you @ValenciaTravelCusco for the awesome experience thus far! —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet

Everyday I’m looking around this place and saying, wow, are these colors ever real?? It’s like they’re more vibrant than I’m used to and I keep trying to take it all in but it’s almost overwhelming! This was at Moray, an ancient Incan farm land that we tented ATVs to get to yesterday... the adventures have been so much fun out here!!! —- I’m up early this am with 15 others (12 in our group of friends) and we’re on our way to embark on the Inca Trail... this has been a bucket list item (top 3!!!) for very many years so I’m calm but the underlying theme is fear (of the trail) and excitement!!! I won’t be posting again till Saturday so wish me luck! —— Thank you @letalrose for the photo and again, happy birthday!! —— . . . . . #herwanderfullife #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #outdoorwomen #wildernessbabes #wildernessculture #narcissisticnomad #andshesdopetoo #adventuregirls #theoutbound #outdoorsupply #backcountrycom #mountaingirls #radgirlscollective #adventureismydrug #adventureofalifetime #adventurecollective #adventureawaits #whatsyour20 #optoutside #rei1440project #seetheworld #livealifeworthliving #weliveweexplore #getoutside #alpinebabes #likeamountaingirl #campingofficial #traveling_the_blue_planet
