Throughout the year, this magnificent plateau transforms with the seasons: From the brown/tan fall when farmers plow the land with donkeys and mules to brown/white in winter with snow covered peaks of the Atlas. In spring, green/red when the barley fields of bright green mix with poppy flowers.  Yellow/brown in summer announcing the harvest.
