You are welcome to join us as Donna Abner shares a presentation discussing her adventure travelling to Peru and hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. She was drawn to visit by the mountain scenery and the wildlife. During the presentation, you will see photos from Donna’s trip in a video produced by Tom McGlone, a Berea resident. After the video, Donna will be happy to answer any questions about her experience.
The Inca Trail spans approximately 28 miles of 6,000-13,800 ft elevation change through the Andes Mountain range ending at Machu Picchu. This was part of the Inca Empire Highway that spanned more than 2,500 miles from Quito, Ecuador to Santiago, Chile. Machu Picchu was one of a series of fortified sites for travelers along the Inca Highway. It was “discovered” by Hiram Binham III in 1911 and it became a UNESCO site in 1983.
