Ouzoud Waterfalls

I finally arrived to Marrakech, after several airport delays and having to spent the night in Madrid.  Our Guide picked me up and took me to an amazing place not far from Marrakech prior to having to pick up Stacey and Paula.   Ouzoud Waterfalls are located near the Grand Atlas village of Tanaghmeilt, in the province of Azilal, 150 km northeast of Marrakech, in Morocco. Ouzoud means “the act of grinding grain” in Berber.   One thing I have noticed is Morocco is filled with amazing surprises around every corner.  This country has so many different types of Landscapes and terrains.  We walked mind you from the top to the bottom, back up ….then I had a bright idea that I wanted Coffee…. Mhmmm as you guessed other side at the Bottom!  LOL  YES I GOT MY CARDIO IN!!  But it was simply beautiful.   This Waterfall is indeed a working grain mill and the interesting thing about this is, not only is it an oasis around it, but it continues to flow at full flow even in the worst of dry weather.  One more thing … I feel very blessed.  When I spoke to the owner of a Riad’s name- Auberge Taghoulite, owner Hamid.  He told me he was sorry that I was not able to see the rainbow as the sky was not in a condition to view it, BUT he was wrong, as I got to top, looked at the falls, an amazing rainbow showed to me as you will see.   As fast as it appeared to me and I got off a few shots…. it went away.
