Travelling around Fes - desert OR mountains

I'd really appreciate any advice on what trips are possible from Fes. We can only spend three days in and around Fes, but would really like to see either the great desert, or the Atlas mountains. (or both?)

Could anyone provide handy tips on where we can go? Day one has to be spent exploring Fes, and at the end of day four we need to be in Casablanca, so this might just be a two day holiday in the end!

The most common day trips are to Meknes and the Roman ruins at Volubilis, and Ifrane/Azrou with its cedar forests and barbary monkeys.

Some people go to the spa at nearby Moulay Yacoub, I think that a completely underrated day trip from Fes is to Taza to visit the Gouffre du Friouato, the largest cavern in North Africa.

The nearest desert is by Merzouga and is more than 7 hrs away, unfeasible.

My advice would be to do the Fes medina the first two days, then either Ifrane/Azrou or the Friouato caves the third, and visit Volubilis on your way to Casa on the fourth day.
