Out of the Jurisdiction: Machu Picchu, Day One


For all of our bucket lists:  Machu Picchu.





Remarkable that an indigenous people with poor tools and no apparent engineering knowledge
could and would create such an extensive and precision-made environment
600 to 1,000 years ago.




Beautiful.  Steep.  Vast.  Isolated.  Awe-inspiring.  Magical.

I am away again until mid-March.

I'm envious- I would love to be there for myself. I wonder how many times that first shot has been photographed since the place was rediscovered.

Wonderful photos Jack. It looks breath-taking. I'm not likely to visit for real so it's great to see your pictures.
