To the Top of the World

The meeting theme in Marrakech was "Climbing to Success", so it was only appropriate that our teambuilding activity took us on a climbing adventure to the nearby Atlas mountains.

Although the majority of our day was spent driving Land Rovers up steep winding paths, paved wide enough for only one vehicle (and yes, the traffic definitely flew by in both directions), we did get a few opportunities to stop and take in the sights.

A perfect day, wouldn't you say? Look at that blue sky!

First rest stop.

Mid-morning tea break.

A boy and his donkey.

Camel rides on the side of the road.

Baby sheep and goats.

You almost couldn't see some of the villages we passed. They were often well hidden in the hills, always the same color as the earth.

Mountains majesty.

Audrey, I can’t believe how incredibly beautiful Morocco is. These pictures almost make it seem like a fairytale. You are so fortunate to have been able to see it. I’m glad that you had a safe and productive trip.

Love you,
