Today, I share a travelogue from Compass traveler Lois Watts who joined us on our Western adventure to America’s Canyonlands this Fall. Enjoy!
On September 19, a merry band of 18 travelers, hosted by Compass Travel, left the ordered world of New England behind for a 10-day tour of another world: America’s Ellie shoes Womens 709-cari Platform SandalDisinfom Woman Flats Handmade Quality Genuine Leather Sexy Pointed Toe Low Heels shoes Classic Soft Office Lady LoafersCanyonlands—ancient, Women Boat shoes Suede Flats Slip On Loafers Comfy Walking Ballet FlatsDBDK DK87 Women Leatherette Almond Toe Strappy Zip Riding Bootie - Taupeprimeval, surreal, untouched by time and civilization.
Our first stop was Utah, where we met up with Jennie, our fantastic tour guide and “Happy Max,” our bus driver.Rieker Women Sandals red, (red) 624B4-35Elsa Wilcox Women Buckle Strap Zip Chelsea Boots Motorcycle Pointed Toe High-Heels Martin Boots Sexy Winter Warm Fur Ankle Boots We began our visit in Zion National Park, a world of towering red stone cliffs that surrounded us as we set off on a hike. No words or photographs can begin to capture what rain, wind, time and the Colorado River shaped over millions of years. Suddenly, we felt reduced in size and significance entering these giant red canyon cliffs of Zion.

We all felt the awesomeness of this towering world that enveloped us.

Next was Bryce Canyon, a vast series of amphitheaters that unfolded ad infinitum with dazzling colors of red, pink, lavender, and orange stone shapes called “hoodoos” created by nature through the millennium. The hoodoos rose from the plateau in all shapes and sizes as if a giant had been playing in the sand.1TO9 Womens Boots Closed-Toe No-Closure Kitten-Heel Warm Lining Not_Water_Resistant Smooth Leather Bootie Closed-Toe Urethane Boots MNS02495AdeeSu Girls Platform Buckle Chunky Heels Imitated Leather Boots Snake Pattern Ankle Boots Sexy Lace Cuff Thick Heel Boots Fall Winter Fashion Black Red shoesWallhewb Women's Sneakers Wedges Heigh Increasing Casual shoes Platform Fashion High Heels shoes Comfortable Internal Increasing Elegant Joker No Griding Feet Skinny Soft White 7 M US Casual shoesSome were shaped like castles or cathedrals, all otherworldly as the mind struggled to take in the size, shapes, and colors. There are no words to describe the majesty of this natural phenomenon created by wind, ice, and rain, eroding into fantastic shapes as far as the eye can see.
We then boarded small eight-passenger planes and flew over Monument Valley, the ancestral and mysterious homeland of Navajo Indians. Upon landing, we traveled by jeep with our Navajo guide along the dusty roads through the valley.

Civilization comes close here with many hotels and lodges located near the rim. Imagine sitting on the porch of the lodge sipping a drink as the sun moves across the massive canyons turning them red, then purple, then green and then orange. An experience to savor; a moment where civilization and ancient canyons meet.

Jennie said we might “feel the vortex here” and, while I never felt it, Sedona was a positively beautiful town situated in a pocket with red cliffs surrounding and protecting.
By the last day, we were all getting a bit tired and the bus had grown quieter until it was announced that our hotel had a bar. Then the cheers erupted from the back of the bus as the merry band of travelers capped off their days with a cool one.Winter Mid Calf Boots for Women Genuine Leather Plush Square Heel Cross-Tied Riding Lace-Up shoesT-JULY Sandals for Women Peep Toe Suqare Heel Zipper Rome Style Casual Breathable Beach Ladies shoesWhat a fun, friendly, traveling group.

Our vacation was AWESOME. We had so much fun. All of our travels went smoothly. Our tour director, German Rojas, was great. It was the perfect combination of activities and relaxation—we had so many interesting things to do. Our tour group included 22 people. Traveling by bus, we saw many different parts of the country; rest stops and attractions along the way helped break up the driving.

We saw a wide variety of animals including sloths, crocodiles, monkeys, otters, turtles, iguanas, king fishers, toucans, and every imaginable bird, flower, and butterfly.
