Oh, and I forgot to post this specimen. 

Is it a dinosaur embryo?

No.

Is it a mushroom ? 

No.

Is it a duck? 

No. 

It's a piece of chert. 

A friend of mine wanted a piece as apparently it's used for polishing the paper in calligraphy. Or something. 

Anyway, he was very pleased with his gift.

Beautiful scenery, Adam - thanks for showing us!

 

And I, too, am glad to hear that you were able to get out for a hunt - I certainly am excited for winter to be over here so I can get out again!!!

Adam, great pictures. Thank you!

In the oued Ziz, those plateaus of the river banks correspond to sedimentary rocks of the Cretaceous.

Thanks, Monica. :)

It was pretty cold on this day, but bearable. 

Hopefully, your spring will be here soon.

Thanks!:)

My map shows mainly Jurassic for the Aoufous Oasis, but Cretaceous does occur nearby and on the top.

Thank you.:)

And you're right about the harmony thing, still traditionally made here, but sadly not elsewhere, as shall be seen.

Maybe You could get the mods to merge them into 1 thread?

No, i'd rather have them separate for now so people can look up just one location with the search feature in the future and also I may add to each location when I've done some further research and prepping.
