Photo of the Day: Machu Picchu

| by Jason on August 2nd, 2021 | 6 Comments » | Photo of the Day

Machu Picchu is one of the greatest sites to visit in all of South America.  The awesomeness of the Inca ruin can only be understood when you are actually there walking through the ancient city.  It’s a very difficult place to take great photos, often cloudy, raining and swarming with tourists.   A patient photographer would probably visit for several days trying to get the perfect picture, but the entrance fee was too steep for us.

This turkey was at one of our rest stops during our Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu.   The second picture below is of the same exact turkey after getting agitated.  My only guess is it didn’t like me too close to it taking pictures, but I didn’t ask directly.

We found these flowers during our Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu.  Unfortunately, we are not sure what the name of this flower is, but it definitely has the shape of an angel or princess.
