In my dreams, Morocco appears as a remote and magical place. I have long imagined traversing the vast Saharan desert in a caravans of camels, and hiking into the snow-peaked Atlas Mountains. I imagined getting lost in the dark and exotic mazes of the old cities with their North African bazaars. Last year I realized that it was time to visit Morocco and see for myself what it was like.
In early, November, 2015, I traveled to Morocco with my husband and another couple to cycle, hike, explore and immerse ourselves in the mountains, desert and the culture. Moroc Nature, an adventure tour company owned and guided by Moroccans, expertly and wonderfully organized and guided our trip.
Morocco proved visually stunning and more intriguing that I ever could have imagined. My photographs in this series of blog posts (which I am in the process of creating) relate my experiences over a ten day visit.
