Ancient Inca City.



9/5/2016: I took a taxi up to the pass at Abra Malaga where I was to hike down into the valley and meet the taxi driver on the bottom. After hiking a bit, the "single" trail branched off into about four thousand trails, and I was not sure that I was walking down the correct valley. Of course, it was starting to get dark. I ended up on some cow path through a bunch of bushes walking in a river, but there it was. The taxi!
