The Ourika Valley

The hotel is low in the valley
This meant the use of a "Berber Taxi" to get us to our walks


The start of our walk up past Agart
Looking down on our start near the concrete bridge


The lower path
with a first sighting of Agart


The valley road below us...


...and our path...


...and some of our party


The prosperous village of Agart
surrounded by cultivated terraces
and with a backdrop of mountains


Our shady lunch spot above the village...


...with a cool stream


Our return path
Moving on to a high open area


Strange green rock
(brown below its weathered surface)


Our return to the valley road
Did someone say, the previous day, I wouldn't go over one of those!


The Cascades

A very popular route, but one needing some ignominious assistance from locals


A cafe high in the valley displays its "Berber Fridge"


Our return route looks down on parties ascending


The final stages of descent
