A cold country with a hot sun "
a relatively small country, Morocco has a strikingly varied landscape.
Many different types of local climate have produced such contrasting
scenery as mountain valleys carpeted with flowers, the sun- scorched
dunes of the Sahara, moist cedar forests and wadis swollen with
spring rains. This subtropical climate is similar to that of the
maritime regions of California and southern Europe. You can quite
easily travel from the snows of the High Atlas to the sands of
the Sahara in the space of a day.
