To head south, I would go via Guercif and Taza. There are some deep grottes near Taza, and the road Merhaouia to Immouzzer-des-Marmoucha is a great ride. When you get to Boulemane, I would go to Midelt via Timahdite and Col du Zad, rather than the really boring road via Taouerda.

Irving Mather (1892-1966)
