    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.

    It took us 3 days to get the Highest Resolution image, so I took another walkabout on the second day. Interestingly, I ran into a guy who was repairing some of the wall. He said the Incas used Clay, Sand, and Quarz to
