Vacation 2011 Day 12 into the Draa Valley

The seventh day of our trek across the Jebel Sahro in southern Morocco began with a crystal clear sky.

We were coming down into the Draa Valley that separates the highlands known as Jebel sahro from the might Atlas Mountains visible, snow-capped, in the distance.

It was a fairly uneventful day and we made camp in the early afternoon in the middle of an undulating sea of rock. Some may call it barren, but for me it is naked mother earth. I have long since given up trying to figure out why it is that I feel most home, safe, and comfortable in an environment of rock and sky.

Off in the distance a little weather began to form.

The land was not completely without vegetation :)
