Heading down the other side of the Atlas Mountains and alone the valley floor to Dades Gorge. The hotel was very nice and comfortable.
The gorge has very high sides (about 300 metres) and we spent half an hour walking through the gorge which was extremely pleasant.
The rest of the day was spent driving east towards Merzouga, where we found some spectacular sand dunes, a lovely soft red hue. We walked for several miles across the dunes, climbing the ridges to get a good view, before arriving at our hotel. However, we were not staying in the room (even though we had one to leave our gear) as we headed off with some four legged friends in the desert for the night.
