Picture heavy post, Sacred valley and Machu Picchu

After you ride all that wonderful twisty pavement in the Sacred Valley you come to Santa Maria, then you hit gravel through Santa Teresa to Hidroelectrica. The road gets really high on the side of a cliff with no shoulder and about a 2 or 3 thousand foot drop to the river below. I really couldn't stop at the raelly scary parts and take a picture because of all the buses and mini-vans full of tourists I was competing with but this will give you and idea. not looking forward to that aprt of the ride tomorrow.




Do you see the blue gravel truck in this picture? I'm telling you this road is really really high.



Before that though, back on the Sacred Valley Pavement I took these shots.









sweet like cream soda






















I finally made it to Hidro Electrica and caught the train to Auga Caliente

I had this great wood oven baked pizza and a beer and went to bed at 8:30, so I could get up early and be at Machu Picchu for the early morning light and beat the crowds.
