Atlas Mountains

November 2015 – Atlas Mountains, Morocco

Time to leave the city. We rented a 4×4 and set off east towards the Atlas Mountains. These mountains surround southern Morocco, often famous for it’s vast landscape and beautiful villages. Lots of big hollywood films are made here.

We stayed somewhere near Dades Gorges, near an oasis of palm trees. It was actually near by to our driver’s home town. Can only imagine what it’s like to grow up here.

Dades Gorges. I loved the windy roads coming to the top. I think it would be a sick drive if I could do car racing!

Further along our drive towards the desert, we found the Tafilate Palm Groves

On the road again, starting to look like desert. 

 

It was a beautiful 2 day drive towards Merzuga desert, to be a surrounded by blue sky and calming Moroccan country side.
