Peter Anderson checked-in after a long day on the trail. The group is doing well and are getting ready to have dinner before they bed down for the night, so they get some rest before they try for a 4 am wakeup in the morning. Peter said that today was mystical on the trail as the team experienced better weather with clouds floating up and down the valley as they trekked along. The team also enjoyed meeting up with the “true Inca Trail.” As they walked over the path of cobbled ancient stones, they ascended two passes, in addition to descending the large rock steps. They look forward to their shorter hike tomorrow, and should reach Machu Picchu early in the day.
