Campsite under the starlight

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012 :: 10:42 pm

Just got back from my trip to Peru – it was simply amazing! For some reason, I’ve always wanted to visit Machu Picchu and hike the Inca trail. I loved the fact that we were pretty much the only group hiking the Inca Quarry trail, adding to the serenity and peacefulness of this hike.

As we stepped out of our dinner tent and looked up, we could see the stars & milky way ever so clearly, with the moonlight shining brightly above. Here’s a shot on the first night at our campsite, 3700m above sea level, pointing towards the south.

More to come.
