Unfortunately you cannot use Weather Hopper to check surf conditions (yet), however you can see current weather and historical averages:

Devils Tower

If you watched "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" by Steven Spielberg then you should remember this marvelous rock formation. 

Devils Tower, 1,267 feet (386 m) high , is located in Wyoming, USA. It's unusual and fantastic shape is caused by the lava that frozen inside volcano. Today there are no remains of outer volcano, only the core you see remained. 

It's located in Wyoming USA. The area is fairly close to the other US tourism and outdoor point of interests: Badlands National Park and Wind Cave National Park, Mount Rushmore, historical Deadwood town and many other places worth seeing.

Imlil, Atlas mountains

Imlil is a small Moroccan village located in Atlas mountains, 1740 meters above sea level. 

It's a base for hiking Jebel Toubkal (highest Norther African peak, 4167m) or other beautiful trails. 

Easily accesible from Marrakech could be also great travelling destination itself. 

PS. Wikipedia says that 'Seven years in Tibet' was partly filmed there.

Travelling impression

While travelling, there are THOSE days, mornings, evenings and afternoons. Full of sun, with subtle wind cooling your body. 

You can smell the grass and flowers, hear birds playing over your head. 

Perfectly black road surrounded by green and yellow trees is empty, the traffic is so little.

Only you and your backpack there, hitching a ride but it's so perfect that you wish to stay there little bit more. Just to embrace the freedom.

Here's simple picture showing Al Jadida medinas (old city) main street. Originally the city was founded by Portuguese, currently you can find there Spanish and Portuguese churches, mosque and synagogue.

Center of the city is reserved for beautiful water cistern, it's actually the place where Orson Welles shot some pictures for Otello.
