“Madam, You Are In the Middle of Nowhere”
…said the manager of the Kasbah du Toubkal to Annie when we checked in. And, that’s exactly what we felt like – and, LOVED – about being in the High Atlas Mountains.
Our hotel was a one-mile, uphill hike (or, mule ride if you were John) to the Kasbah – a former palace turned into a hotel. This area is known for trekking and hiking thanks to Toubkal, the highest peak in both Morocco and in North Africa.
Pat, Michael and Annie hiked to the halfway point which was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We also learned a lot about the Berber culture along the way which was another part of this trip that we’ll never forget.
