    Oh my gosh. When you go to the 16 gigapixel picture of Machu Picchu, you can zoom in to so much detail so far away. Use the controls at the bottom of the picture... click the one on the right to make the picture full screen. Then the + and - to zoom in and out and the up, down, left, and right arrows to navigate (or use your mouse).

    I drew a couple red circles on the peaks. On the peak to the left there is a person up there at the top. On the peak in the center of the picture, there are walls made of the polished dry-stone even way up there. Zoom in and check them out!

    If you know any blind people, please share this with them. This is a difficult hike, so a binaural recording is a great way for the blind to experience Machu Picchu

    Gordon and I tried to capture Machu Picchu in a way that you could personally experience. We feel this is as close as you can come to visiting and exploring yourself.

    A special thanks to theLarom for the HOURS of work he spent making the maps just right. I'm really greatful for his time, and I think it adds a really neat touch to the exploration.

    Also, thanks to Henry for helping me get through a rendering problem I was having.

    MP was on my " outside Canada " bucket list

    i was just waiting to win the lottery . . .

    but we're too close to TSHTF now

    FOOD
    SHELTER ( includes fire/heat )
    SECURITY

    TSHTF does not mean you stop living
    you just change your definition of a " good life "
