Photo of the day: Urubamba River Valley, Peru

Any time is a good time to explore a country like Peru, but the Urubamba River Valley shines in this summertime shot of the landscape, taken by Maribeth Latvis. If you venture out on a trip to Machu Picchu, which over 400,000 people do each year, the Urubamba River Valley can be explored either before or after your trip. In fact, my fiance passed through the valley while hitch-hiking to Machu Picchu. With its main attraction being the Urubamba River, the valley flourishes with life.
