Peru: Salkantay to Machu Picchu. Travel presentation @ Studio b. Oct 6 @7pm.
This Wednesday at 7 PM at Studio b., Joan Vienot will be showing slides of her fantastic trip hiking in Peru from 9/14 to 9/25/10. She will show the scenery and talk about hiking with a group sponsored by REI Adventures in partnership with Mountain Lodges of Peru. They hiked 35 miles, lodge-to-lodge, along the Salkantay and Inca Trails to Machu Picchu, where they had a day and a half to tour the ruins. Hiking elevations ranged from 15000' to 7000', traversing ecosystems from alpine to high jungle. This was a trip of a lifetime for Joan. Joan says traveling through so many ancient places throughout the trail was humbling and inspiring, and she is excited to share this experience.

“I wanted an adventure instead of just a vacation,” said Vienot. “I like eco adventures where you have to do something.”
And she got what she wanted.
