All of the 'behind the scenes' group before they departed back home.
The valley we are descending down. We will be passing the pointed peak in the centre later on today.
A view back to Ouanoukrim.
A deep blue sky and although not too green there was a rich vegetation here too.
Still descending - it was near here that we passed a shrine.
A small lizard just off the path.
The shrine. Legend has it that a Genie lives within the rock that is pained white and pilgrims come here to sacrifice animals for good blessings and good health.

Our final destination today is a gite (similar to a hostel) and is only another few miles.
A view back up to Toubkal.
Our gite is just down there!
Beautiful rocky mountains around Imlil.
