Life in Morocco's High Atlas Mountains

Morocco's High Atlas Mountains can be a harsh and desolate place, yet for many centuries the Berbers have called it home. They have adapted their life to this environment with the valley rivers and streams, fed from melting snow, providing the life blood. These photographs will give an idea of the environment and the Berber lifestyle there.
