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 Garyline Women's Soft Material Buckle Open Toe Kitten Heels SandalsExing Women's shoes New Korean Version Tassel Rhinestone Slope Sandals Ankle Strap Ladies Single shoes Pink White BeigeCanyonlands—ancient, T-JULY Women's Sandals Open Toe Metal String Bead Square Heel Korean Style Ladies shoes for SummerWomen's Fashion Summer Sandals Lady's Stiletto Heel Splicing High-Heeled Sandals Leisure Large Size Pumps 33-46primeval, 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.T-JULY Fashion Wild Thick Heel Boots Women with European and American Autumn Winter Martin BootsFranco Sarto Womens Reeve2 Ankle Boot 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. BalaMasa Womens High-Heel Zipper Platform Bows Chunky Heels White Urethane Boots ABL09585 - 5.5 B(M) USVIC Men's Casual Canvas shoes Lace Up High Top Canvas SneakerSome of us took the difficult trails, others the easy trails with our guides. We all felt the awesomeness of this towering world that enveloped us.
Evenings we stopped to check into our hotel, the bus bursting with cheers when Holly announced, CYBLING Womens Ankle Boots Bowknot Round Toe Faux Suede Chunky Mid Heel Platform Short BootiesZarbrina Womens Wedge Platform Ankle Boots Elegent Round Toe Lace Up High Heel Short Plush Winter Martin Snow shoes“There’s a bar in the hotel!”
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.Reef Womens Escape Lux Print 2-Pair Variety PackAlrisco Women Rhinestone T-Strap Flat Sandal - Braided Bedazzled Summer Sandal - Casual Dressy Versatile Everyday Sandal - HD59 by Betani Colleciton CYBLING Women's Ankle Strap Mary Jane Pumps Comfortable Round Toe Chunky Block Heels shoesQPGGP-boots Martin Boots, Autumn Winter, European and American Pointed Martin Boots, Women's Sleeve, Elastic Short Boots, Simple Women's shoes.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.

Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Groove Women's Bestie Dress PumpFINDYOU Fashion Women shoes Medium Heel Buckle Pumps Women Mary Jane shoes Thick Heelsjewelry, 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.

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,Eora-2sl Mules shoes Women Suede Summer Woman shoes Strange Heels Outdoor Casual shoes Woman SlippersKingRover Women's Pleated Buckle Cow Suede Leather Boots 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.Minnetonka Women's Classic Driving MoccasinDutte Lisa Women's Yellow Rooster Birthday Party Casual shoes Laces Low Canvas Slip on SneakersWhat 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.
Geox Women's Annytah A Ballerina shoesThe 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.

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.Winging Women Black White Checkerboard Check Diagonal Cute Canvas Sneakers shoesLadola Womens Light-Weight Rhinestones Metal Lace Urethane Boots.
