After two long days of driving along Route 704, the single lane dirt road that connects Todra Gorge to Dades Gorge, we finally found pavement again.
There is a road that connects the gorges via a regular road but we chose to take the scenic and memorable road.
Once we dropped down off of the dirt road, water and communities began to re-appear.
As we inched closer to Dades, we saw the landscape change once again.
I didn’t expect to be amazed by new rock formations today but I sure was. To see this in person was so so beautiful.
We decided to spend a couple nights camping at a campground called Berbere De La Montagne insideof Dades Gorge.
The campground hotel immediately invited us inside for tea and snacks.
Luka is loving this Moroccan tea tradition. Mila is here for the sugar cubes. And Ava would not rather drink tea.
Pouring from up high.
When we arrived we were the only guests here. Just us and some ducks.

Decided to pay for electricity and hide in the trees. The reason we opted for electricity is so we can use our portable induction stove to boil water for drinking. Saves us propane which is harder to refill down here and from buying single use plastics.
Just outside of our campground is this magnificent view.
Rocks on all sides and a small river as well.
All settled in for a few nights.
Our friends Alex and Verena are here as well.
Afternoon coffee time with Dan.
I made him take a photo with the sign. We’re mature. Real mature.
We took a walk, just the two of us, while the kids stayed in the van.
Walked right into these shenanigans.
Carved rocks from the river.
And then the cars cleared and we had this walk to ourselves.
Goats all over the mountains.
Cafe on the side of the road.
Another campground hotel.
This counts as a date.
Walking back to camp.

Looks like we got some new neighbors.
A lot more.
Tomorrow we will head out of Dades and enjoy more rock formations.
Thanks for following along,
