Machu Picchu, a photo essay.

May 21, 2012–I remember standing here and turning from one direction to another and realizing that every angle was a photo opportunity.  I even took pictures as I rested flat on my back in the grass.  My senses were heightened to such an extent that I consciously reminded myself that I wanted to remember this experience forever.  I could not help but feel as if I were on holy ground.  I thought if I took many, many pictures I would be able to go back to that place in my mind, and the sense of wonder and awe that I felt there would still be with me.  The Inca engineering feat that is Machu Picchu and the unbelievable Andes Mountains that are God’s creation overwhelmed me that day and will for the rest of my life.  Enjoy!

    • Hi Vickie. I hope you take this trip sooner rather than later. I mentally put it on my bucket list when I was fifteen years old. It sat dormant for a very long time. I’ve never seen anything like it. I was blown away!

  1. Breathtaking! Thank you so much for posting these Pat – it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to travel to. Maybe one day.

    • As you can probably tell, I loved it. I would go again tomorrow but I keep reminding myself that there are many places I have yet to see so I don’t guess I’ll repeat this one.
