|Lac de Tizlit, Morocco||Week 98 17th February 2013|
As we began the long descent there's more signs of agriculture.
|We aren't descending far but its noticeable.|
|Occasional small orchards.|
|And a Khattara.|
|What a mixture.|
|This brought new meaning to the idea of cold water washing.|
We headed north of Imilchil to Lac Tislit.
We haven't a clue why there are two pitched roof buildings in a land of flat roofs.
We headed along that track.
We later came back to camp at the far end of the lake.
After about 9km there is a second lake. Lac de Isli.
We had originally planned to camp but really didn't find anywhere suitable and the weather was beginning to cloud over.
There was supposed to be a fort. But we didn't find it.
So instead we drove past where all the maps said the road ended.
The track entered a gorge.
We mistakenly assumed that since the water was flowing our way eventually there would be a better road in front.
We crossed the river many times.
Eventually a village.
The road stopped.
We turned round.
The villagers were friendly.
It looked like there were more villages further downstream.
Isolated comes to mind.
There was a new well being built and lots of plastic piping. Needed because the river was red.
Something about all the basics we take for granted.
|Just as awkward going back.|
|Lac de Isli.|
And finally back to Lac de Tizlit.
We camped at lakeside. 2265m so we are expecting another cold night.
