Independence Day on El Camino Inca
After months spent planning our expedition to Peru for the ultimate outdoor adventure-a four-day, 26-mile climb through the Andes Mountains to the “Lost” city of Machu Picchu-we very nearly didn’t make it to the Inca Trail at all. Just days before we were supposed to lace up our hiking...
