Phil called in late yesterday (they’re plus 2 hours in Peru) to report that all is well. It was a touch cloudy yesterday which kept the temps nice and cool. They enjoyed some Incan ruins along the way, a nice big lunch and a huge dinner in the evening. A great day all around.
Day 2 of the trek to Machu Picchu takes them up into the cloud forests of the Andes Mountains and over Dead Woman’s Pass, the highest point along the Inca Trail (4200m/13,800ft).
