We're going to do the 4-day hike up the Inca Trail! I went to Machu Picchu back in 2004, but took a bus to get there. I watched all the haggard, stinky, crazy, bearded hikers walking around and I felt strangely like I cheated big time. Then and there I decided I would hike it, someday. Today I'm booking the trek! I rounded up a group of 6 for sures and 3 maybes, and on May 11th, 2011 we will forego showers and pillows and fresh-smelling breath and walk the 26 miles straight up the mountain to arrive at the scene above.
