Sources De Meski
I wind down out of the mountains, and stumble across the magical Sources De Meski. After driving hundreds of miles through sun-baked, rocky desert, I’ve found an actual oasis. An honest to goodness, like in the movies oasis, complete with palm trees and fresh water bubbling up from the ground.
It’s too good to be true.
A huge canyon has been eroded into the desert floor, at the bottom of which a natural spring pours out crystal clear water. Palm trees and farmland pack the canyon, and naturally it’s a hangout and local meeting point.
I camp under palm trees, swim in the oasis and hike to the ruins of the old city that’s about 500 years old up on the canyon rim.
It really is paradise here. Morocco continues to amaze me.
