Glorious poppies in the fields of the High Atlas

Late April/May was a perfect time to visit the High Atlas mountains... beautifully green with wild flower jewels in the fields. The photos of the poppies in particular do not do justice to the scenery - bucolic bliss.

 

 

Up early on day 10, for a smashing breakfast on the roof terrace of La Fibule D'Or, making the most of that marvellous view out over the Mellah river and Aït Benhaddou.

 

Another day of driving, but this time up into the High Atlas mountains and over the Tizi-n-Tichka pass, zig zagging back down and on through villages and farmland climbing back up towards Imlil and the beautiful Toubkal National Park. We spent the night in a basic family run gite in the village of Aremd - 45 minute walk up into the mountains from Imlil. Lovely.
