We continue to be blessed with perfect weather, no rain( although it's meant to be the wet season) & cloudless blue skies. Today was a 4 hour drive to Midelt to start of a journey through 3 specific geographic regions of the Atlas mountains. Leaving Fez we soon start a continuous gentle climb to the middle Atlas mountains signified initially by intensive agriculture in fertile valleys and changing to cedar forests and flattening out to a treeless, rocky plateau and the occasional nomadic shepherd.

Today was a moving day and our stop in Midelt was mainly an opportunity to break a long trip to the Sahara with breaks to wander through ex,a weekly Berber market, enjoy a Moroccan BBQ lunch and an easy walk to explore a traditional Berber village.

Our overnight stay at Auberge Jaafar was rustic but adequate given the remote location.
