Photo by Hiram Bingham A DISTANT VIEW OF OUR FIRST CAMP: MACHU PICCHU A view looking over the tops of two of the houses of Ingenuity Group toward our camp and some of the agricultural terraces. The beams on top of one of the houses were placed there recently by one of our Indians, who thought this might make a good modern dwelling, but he found it too large for comfort. The huts of the modern Indians are much smaller than these houses and have no windows. It is possible that this may indicate that the climate has grown colder as well as dryer.
