Atlas Mountains, Morocco

It is a 12 hour journey from Rissani to Marrakesh. Our journey starts in the desert and continues on to the Hollywood city of Ouarzazate. Game of Thrones, Lawrence of Arabia, The Mummy and Gladiator were all shot here, to name a few. Unfortunately, we are on the wrong side of the bus to take pictures of the sets, village, kasbahs and studios. As we wind our way up the Atlas Mountains the terrain changes from desert to temperate forests and farmland once you crest the tallest mountains. The road is narrow with a lot of switchbacks causing some passengers to vomit. This part was 6 hours long and reminded us about the bus to Fez. Once we got to the foothills it was driving was less nauseating and we were, once again, able to enjoy the scenery.
