A Mosque in the Atlas Mountains

Up in the air during the daily call to prayer

One of the coolest things about being in Marrakech was being up high when the mosques call their faithful to come pray many times per day. From the top of every mosque you hear all kinds of sounds and songs… I have no idea what they are saying, but it does sound kind of awesome.

Daily Photo – A Mosque in the Atlas Mountains

It was a long and windy drive from Aït Benhaddou to Marrakech, but it was totally stunning. There were about ten other places I wanted to stop in the mountains, but I didn't have the time. But maybe this one mosque was just enough. I was surprised there was still snow on the mountains, and it made for the perfect background.
