    Canfield passion in Morocco

    My One and I are on the way back home after a week of riding in Morocco. I'm a lousy photographer, and I got basically no picutres of riding, but the place is unbelieveable. Some truly unique riding, and experences. I just had to share the stroke.

    I think the only riding picture from the trip. You can see for easily 50 miles from up there.

    View from the side of an unbelievable mule path. Trails aren't recreation for these people, they are transportation. This was in the middle of probably 10 miles of descending countour trail

    I had some misunderstandings about the climate in this part of Africa. Up in the mountains, it's very green in the winter and spring. Apparently it gets more and more brown as the year goes on, and it gets hotter and drier.

    Some Moroccoan kids giving it a go. Don't tell them the bike is too big! I was afraid they were going to launch it off a cliff or something...

    Anyway, that's all for now. My One now has dirt on it from 3 continents, still the best bike I've ridden.

    Nice little writeup! The surrounding mountains look similar to the ones in the Guatemalan highland's. How long did you spend there?

    Your pic's make me realize how much miss living out of a backpack. Traveling, the closest thing to freedom....
