Morning Hike!

This morning we went on a hike just outside of our orientation site to test out our hiking boots and climb up the hillside of Urubamba. While the hike lasted less than an hour the steep steps we took hiking up left most of us with a racing heart and needing lots of deep breathes. We discussed different hiking techniques, what to pack in our day packs and learned about the stone storage units that our hike ended at. I loved seeing more of the mountains around us and cant wait to start our first trek!
