Lak Iriki photos and video

Foum Zguid in southern Morocco is where the Zguid river comes out of a canyon onto the plain (foum means mouth) and north of the canyon it was 5ºC at 8am, 800m south it was 14ºC. Sawtooth mountains on the way, morocco-knowledgebase.net/tim/iriki_sawtooth…

Very close to the Algerian border, hence the the military post (not supposed to take photos which is why it was some way off), morocco-knowledgebase.net/tim/iriki_military…

The temperature climbed to 30ºC as I started on the dry bed of Lak Iriki which is 50 miles long, morocco-knowledgebase.net/tim/iriki_tracks.j…

Too much loose sand, though and I bogged down several times, morocco-knowledgebase.net/tim/iriki_stuck.jpg

I've lightened the bike by removing the panners and roll bag and I'm about to drag the 180kg bike out. Good for weight loss! After the third time I'm getting a bit stressed, not helped by the fact I didn't see anyone for five hours, so a bit lonely.
