These rocks, sculpted by sand and wind are called Makhrouga by the Moors. As we approached from the east the rock appeared to be a herd of gigantic elephants striding across the desert. When we entered the area, we could see details like the photo above. Quite elephantine, indeed. The Moorish nomads often come to Makhrouga to enjoy the cool shade during mid day. Their tents were about a half mile away. There were tunnels throughout the rock and we would see the faces of the nomads, including elderly grandmothers, peering down on us from a hole in the rock ceiling.
