Peak Experience at the Machu Picchu, 3x4 inch
At 7972 feet (2430 meters) above sea level, surrounded by a tropical mountain range and the Urumbaba River at its feet, sits the crown of the infamous and mysterious Incan city. If you have room on your bucket list, Machu Picchu is a guaranteed Peak Experience.
Psychologist Abraham Maslow describes P.E. as: “especially joyous and exciting moments in life, involving sudden feelings of intense happiness and well-being, wonder and awe, and possibly also involving an awareness of transcendental unity or knowledge of higher truth (as though perceiving the world from an altered, and often vastly profound and awe-inspiring perspective). They usually come on suddenly and are often inspired by deep meditation, intense feelings of love, exposure to great art or music, or the overwhelming beauty of nature." P.E. is not limited to a place so maybe I’ll try and catch the sunset today.
