As part of our family's trip to Morocco, we scheduled a visit to the town of Merzouga and used it as our starting point for a camel excursion and desert camping experience. Although I'm typically not an early riser, it was well worth the chill and sandy attire to get up before the sun and watch as it climbed up over the dunes. Truly a 'Lawrence of Arabia' moment. Additionally, the stars at night were so bright and beautiful. If the moon hadn't been out, we probably could have seen more stars than sky.
