Machu Picchu

The pictures in this gallery are from Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley, including the cities of Cuzco, Urubamba, and Ollantaytamba. No matter how good the pictures of Machu Picchu, they cannot do justice to the reality of being there. This was right before the Winter Solstice, and festivals were taking place all over Peru. We were lucky enough to see several of them along the way.
