Photo of The Week: Dades Gorge, High Atlas – Morocco 2008
This photo was taken on a route down the Dades Gorge in the Atlas Mountain Range of Morocco in 2008. The route peaks at 3000m above sea level and is a lone double track for most of its length. Once we came off the Todra Gorge route towards Imilchil there was nobody to be seen. We passed by one small hut in the morning and didn’t see a single form of life for the rest of the day. As our first trip away with a vehicle we really felt the high mountain isolation on this day in particular and little did we know that it would change the course of our lives forever.
