South America 2004

Filed Under galleries, international travel, photography

In 2004, I fulfilled a life-long dream of visiting the land of Incas: Peru & Bolivia. I did three treks during the trip, hiking to the famed Machu Picchu, as well as two relatively unknown Inca trails on the Copacabana Peninsula and in the Jungas of Bolivia, north of La Paz. In all, I hiked over 80 miles in three weeks was amazed by the people, culture, and sights along the way. Some of the photos I took on this trip are still amongst my favorite.  For instance, the photograph below is of a small hut on Isla del Sol (“Island of the Sun”) in Bolivia. It has been the main image on my travel website, kahunna.net as well as on my business card.  I have created a new gallery of forty photos taken on this trip, including some that have not seen the light of day the web until now. All photos were taken with a Canon PowerShot G5. Enjoy!
