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 Naturalizer Womens Suma Closed Toe Loafers, Black Croco1045817, Size 5.5Soda Image Women's Comfortable Flat Mid Calf Boot shoesCanyonlands—ancient, Eora-2sl Mixed colors Women Slipper Velvet Summer shoes Pointed Toe Stiletto Heels Dress shoesRieker Damen-Slipper - F 1 2 red (4)primeval, 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.Elsa Wilcox Women Waterproof Suede Short Boots Low Heel Buckle Snow Boots Winter Warm Fur Snow Ankle BootiesWomen Sandals Office Lace-Up Lady Pumps Square Toe Women shoes gold Silver White Footwear 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.AdeeSu Ladies Fur Collar Platform Zipper Frosted BootsBamboo Womens Blizzard-04 Lace Up Winter Fashion Duck Boots WANGZHAO Women's Handbag, Shoulder Bag, Satchel, Travel Bag, CanvasWANGZHAO Single Shoulder Bag, Satchel Bag, Women's Bag, Soft Leather Handbag, Fashionable and Simple.Some 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. Stark red stone pillars of all shapes arose throughout the desert,WANGZHAO Minimalist Fashion Single Shoulder Bag HandbagBetsey Johnson Womens Rosita Sandal standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land.

Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Adidas Pureboost Element shoes Women's RunningT-JULY Ankle Boots Women Thick Plush Waterproof Cotton Boots Side Zipper Cotton Autumn Winter Slip on shoesjewelry, basketry, rugs, and weaving representing the Navajo, Hopi, and Zuni cultures.
The Grand Canyon is a place unto itself, stretching 277 miles long, 18-20 miles wide and 18 miles deep. Roxy Womens Thompson Ii Combat BootGladiator Sandals Sexy Glitters Bling Ankle Strap Open Toe Summer shoes Party Wedding FootwearThe surrounding rim has many viewpoints, each presenting a unique perspective of the whole. 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.
We then began our downward trek from almost 8,000 feet, the Colorado Plateau,Clarks Womens Channing Essa LoaferFay Waters Women Stretch Cloth Sneakers Slip On Shallow Mouth Casual Vulcanized Comfort shoes to our destination in Sedona, with a stop in Flagstaff for lunch along the way. 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.MAVIRS Mules for Women, Women Tassels Embellished Slipper shoes, Pointed Toe Backless Slip on Loafers gold Size 10STEVEN by Steve Madden Women's Rebeca BlackWhat 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.
BILLABONG Womens Take A Walk Ankle BootieThe girls’ favorite part was Tortuguero, where we took boat rides into the rain forest. We saw a wide variety of animals including sloths, crocodiles, monkeys, otters, turtles, iguanas, king fishers, toucans, and every imaginable bird, flower, and butterfly. Yosi Samra Women's Cambelle Flat SandalsNOMIMAS Women's Mid-Calf Boots Add Fur Coarse Block High Heels Slip on shoes Fashion Suede Round HeadWe visited an organic pineapple plantation (delicious), stopped at a farm where we watched how hearts of palm were harvested and then tasted them in homemade tortillas cooked over an open fire,Women Over The Knee Boot High Square Heel Spring Winter shoes Hoof Heels Motorcycle Ladies BootsNike Women's Roshe One Premium shoes drank coconut milk and visited with a very kind and gracious couple who opened their home to us.
We visited the Arenal Volcano, walked through the rain forest on suspension bridges hundreds of feet above the ground, went zip lining (thrilling), went to a breathtakingly beautiful beach and swam in the Pacific Ocean, filmed the monkeys frolicking in the forest, visited small towns along the way, enjoyed beautiful countryside, shopped for souvenirs, sampled all kinds of delicious foods and all in all had a terrific time.AmoonyFashion Women's Cow Leather Kitten-Heels Pointed-Toe Solid Buckle Sandals206 Collective Women's Pearson Shearling Moccasin Slipper.
