"Into The Sahara!" Morocco by Bwana_Brown

Morocco Travel Guide: 10,348 reviews and 29,761 photos

I had the chance to visit Morocco many years ago on my month-long trip from Zambia to Canada via East & North Africa. The Sahara desert beckoned, so I decided that Marrakesh was the place to be - with a bus trip over the Atlas Mountains to Ouarzazate thrown into the mix! Although it was a great experience, the passage of time has severely dulled my memory on the details of exactly where we were from day to day! On the trip over the Atlas range from Marrakesh, we did stop to take this photo of the 'Gate to the Sahara Desert' !

    I found Morocco to be one of the most exotic countires I've visited. Unfortunately, I didn't make it over the mountains to the Sahara.

    Hi Glenn: Thank you for dropping by my Penitentiary page! I love the patina that time brings to your Morocco experience. Oh, and I'm preparing to go to Ecuador in August. Best wishes.

    Great page, Glenn! It seems that much of Marrakech is unchanged in the 30 years since your visit. I guess the modern Gueliz part of town (with its McDonalds!) has sprung up in the last couple of decades, but the old town in your photos looks familiar!

    Nice old photos and memories. The bus trip from Marrakech to Ouarzazate is still good.
