Considering Machu Picchu

The panorama keeps changing, so do the people and seasons.

After the Inca’s left, she was naturally covered with a blanket of nature, as if put to rest for eternity.

Since Hiram Bingham’s discovery in 1911, new generations of Polaroids and khaki vests have walked the grounds.  The Heights of Machu Picchu (1944) brought paradisiacal  inspiration to Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda.

The Inca Trail now leads to a fairy tale of wonder, and a small gift shop.
