As we drove through and over the Atlas Mountains in Morocco we went through some amazing gorges and also over some very high passes. One of them was theCol Du Zad shown in today’s photos. At 2178 metres (over 7000 feet) it is reasonably high and accounts for the snow lying around. The air was also very cold.
On our tour of Morocco we passed through and over the Atlas Mountains on several occasions. They are truly spectacular and the passage through these mountains is a memorable experience.
Most people who don’t know about Morocco probably think that the country is just hot desert and drifting desert sands. Possibly the last thing that they think about is snow! Yes – that is snow in the photo above.
However, we didn’t see all that much snow on our trip. Despite it being the middle of winter, our guide told us that the snow season was late and the falls had to that point been very poor (it was mid December) .
