Yahia picked us up and within about an hour of leaving Marrakech, we had started our ascent into the Atlas Mountains. The views as we made our way up and around the bends of the mountains were stunning. Of which, I am sorry to say, I don't really have photos.
Our second day on the road was just as packed as the previous. Our drive worked its way through switch-backs, hills, valleys, and gorges.
After lunch, Yahia dropped us right at the start of the gorge and we walked through it with the rock walls shooting up on bothsides and water running through it.
We ended the day with an overnight in the Dades canyon just outside the gorge. Driving into the canyon, the light was setting beautifully on the plateaus. We settled in for another impressively cold night. Have I mentioned how cold these nights were?
