Machu Picchu. Luckily, one of the clearest days we had in Peru was the day we visited Machu Picchu. A memorable and awesome day with our friends Ben & Chris.

Now That's A Hat. We stopped in Huayllabamba on a popular shopping day; the markets were full of lovely women in these awesome hats (monteras). I may wear one of these this winter to brighten our dreary Chicago weather.

Singing Lady. Leaving the textile village near Chinchero, a few of the women sang a little farewell song in Quechua. #Peru #SacredValley #ValleSagrado #Inca #Chinchero #Explora #Textile #Quechua #Andes

Potato Picking. We went for a sunset hike around Racchi for the panoramic views of snow-capped mountains. Of course I ended up rolling around in potato fields with farmers.

We visited a small textile village near Chinchero in Peru’s Sacred Valley. This cute one sat quietly wrapped in a blanket on her mother’s back as she strung Alpaca wool into yarn.

Tiger Time. A little late for Tiger Day but.... Happy Tiger Day. This was a beautiful gal we saw on our last trip to Banhavgarh a couple of years ago.

Meet Henry. I swore I'd never have another male cat but... one look from him at the shelter and that was all over. Here he is watching the birds on his first day home.

Last Sunset. My last hike along the shores of Lanai with my friend Chris. A beautiful farewell to a lovely place.

Pu'u Pehe (Sweetheart Rock). The legend surrounding this 80 foot rock is of a young warrior, stricken with grief over the drowning of his lover jumping to his death. I doubt that though. On my first hike over here, there were local teens climbing to the top and jumping. They all made it.

Greetings from Mars. We took an afternoon trip into The Garden of the Gods (Keahiakawelo) on Lanai. This is the area towards the entrance where the soil is a deep rust-red.

Pu'u Pehe Cove. This was taken from the cliffs looking northwest from Sweetheart Rock.
