Toubkal, Morocco


I wondered for a moment, if their souls were there with us–

gasping for air, murdered as they were.

Toubkal 2019

In response to the 2018 murders of two young women in the mountain region where I lived, I embarked on an expedition with my Moroccan friends both as a pilgrimage and way to deal with grief.

Toubkal is the highest peak in North Africa; with Yassine, Daoudi, and Ouba, we were the first people to summit the mountain in 2019.
