January 17-Day 2 on Inca Trail
Got hit with some late thunderstorms last night, but the day started out sunny. Today is our biggest climb. Roughly 4000 of vertical over 3 miles of climbing. And mostly steps. Evidently the Incas never heard of switchbacks.
We topped out at 13,850 ft and descended down another mile or so to our campsite.
it pretty much rained all afternoon and most of the night.
