When my bus got to Machu Picchu and I got unloaded I looked for Miguel, the guide I was supposed to meet at the CheckPoint at 6:40 AM. Miguel had a group of about 10 people. One thing about Machu Picchu is that you never know what the weather will be like. We had really thick fog early in the morning. It cleared off by noon, but not entirely. I heard stories that it could be foggy all day or relatively clear all day. There’s almost always some fog lingering around the site. I figured I got about as lucky as I could realistically hope for. By the afternoon I was getting some pretty clear pictures.
