Morocco In Pictures

Here's a small sample of the hundreds of pictures I took in Morocco. They're in chronological order and should form a fairly continuous photojournal of the trip.


Sunrise from a plane is way cool

Beach at Essaouira


the room in Nalika's house where we stayed

probably my favorite thing I ate in Morocco: tajine kefta. G beef, eggs, and vegetables in a simmering hot clay pot. mmmmm.

The Djemma el-Fna, main square of Marrakech

Koutoubia mosque at dusk

The medina of Marrakech...

...where they sell pretty much anything...

...and I mean ANYTHING.

Spices for sale in the souqs

Just a fraction of the chaos of the Djemma-el-Fna at night

at the base of Toubkal: Imlil

The beginning of the climb

Crossing through the floodplain before Aroumd

Taking a few minutes off and jumping into this awesome waterfall

a great break for sore toes

interesting cooling method

The Refuge. Not of the Newsies variety, sadly.

whatchoo lookin at foo

Sunrise between the peaks

Light and shadow on the mountainside
Yeah, we climbed that. It's pretty much vertical.

Finally at the summit

Looking out over the Atlas

4,167m isn't enough for Ryan... he has to grab that extra five

Smug at the summit

Higher! Higher!

One does not simply walk into Mordor.

I think that might be the Sahara, way off in the distance

A casualty of the descent. Note the makeshift tourniquet/bandage, carefully constructed from tissues and a hair tie.

Delicious delicious breakfast. Every day.

Avocado milkshake... who DOES that

Our room in our Fez guesthouse

Hassan's carpet shop

Walls of Fez. That guy there is actually Aladdin.

The evil salad. Little did we know.

The blue walls of Chefchaouen

Last view of Morocco... hello Spain!
