Morocco – Jebel sahro
The dominant icons of the Jebel Sahro range are Bab n Ali – the twin outcrops at the head of the valley from N’kob. These huge volcanic plugs come at you from around the corner and take your breath away
You can see why this is a favourite area for film crews from the studios in nearby Ouzazarte. It’s the perfect setting for westerns!
The route to here is delightful – a narrow fertile valley, with everlasting echoes. But the route onwards is another matter. At least 15 kms straight up to the the snowline at 2250 metres. From there you look down on Bab n Ali as if they were no more than tiny salt and pepper pots.
Far better to stay here, admire the view and paint it!
