On July 24th, 1911, Machu Picchu was discovered by Hiram Bingham. He was actually looking for a different ruins nearby. Can you imagine? Stumbling on something like Machu Picchu?! Amazing. We've known about them for 100 years now. They have been around for hundreds more than we knew.
I know this blog has gotten a bit off track, but I have needed to get myself sorted out to move forward.
I am still - 100% - planning to climb this mountain. I will experience this place.
