Hiram Bingham, great-grandfather to Simon and Elias, who took photographer Joel Meinholz on this trip, reintroduced the world to the spectacular ruins of Incan site Machu Picchu in the early 1900s with the assistance of the National Geographic Society. The area sees hundreds of thousands of tourists per year.
