Worth The Climb


It’s one of the 7 Wonders of the world. Tucked away at the beginning of the Amazon Rain Forest was a hidden world only discovered around 1910. Its the lost city of Machu Picchu. 

I have heard about it… But I never thought I would see it. Until yesterday! We took planes, buses, and trains to get to the mountain. Then the climb started. I was exhausted and wondering if I should just stop. The air in the higher altitude was thin and it was harder to breathe. 

We made a final turn and then we saw this!


The top view of Machu Picchu!


The Amazon River. 


Walking into the city!

When I was trying to make it up the mountain. I wanted to quit. I’m so glad I didn’t! The view was well worth the climb. 

If you’re on a journey today… And you’re thinking about quitting. DON’T! You will make it. And I promise… The view from the top is amazing!
