Marrakech to Bin El Ouidane. 270kms

Heading southeast we skirt around the "Red City" as Marrakech is called,  and spend most of today on quieter country roads.

We will travel into the Middle Atlas mountains.

In the Middle Atlas mountains we visit the Ouzoud Falls (Cascades d'Ouzoud in French) with several 200 meter + cascades plummeting into the El Azid River below.

About 150kms from Marrakech we will turn off for a diversion to go and visit the well known  Ouzoud Falls whihc in Amezigh (berbere) means "the act of grinding grain", and you will see many old mills in the area, some in use and others not.  There are several cascades with 200m+ vertical drops, falling into the El Abid River (Slaves' river) and it's many gorges.

We'll have a quick lunch stop. Normally there is a stall making and selling M'semens - Crispy square Moroccan pancakes - into which you can add honey and lemon juice. Full of butter, but very tasty!
