The Road To Marrakech

We left Ouarzazate heading north for the Tizn Tichka Pass through the High Atlas mountains to Marrakech.  The road had been constructed by the French in 1936 and reached 2260 metres at the summit.  The scenery was harsh but very beautiful.  It was early November and it was warm and sunny but snow could fall on the pass during the winter months,  The whole journey took about four hours.  

The Road Needed Constant Maintenance
