Vacation 2011 Day 7 Into the Jebel Sahro

We were up early and headed off into the Jebel Sahro, the high country between the mighty Atlas Mopuntains and the Sahara Desert. The way took us past small farming villages and abandoned Kasbahs.

We travelled light as the mules carried everything we would need for the next 10 days.

I was so happy to be back in the desert, with rock underfoot and wide open vistas. This was my second time to the Jebel Sahro, but this time we were taking a different route, so some of the country would be new to me...

Occasionaly we followed rough 4-wheel drive tracks, but mostly we followed mule trails..

Every now and then we past a shop... there is no escaping Coca Cola......

In the middle of the afternoon we reached the place we would set up camp and stay the night.... actually "we" didnt set up camp, the muleteers set up camp, and cooked the food....
