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 Franco Sarto Womens Lima PumpSpring Step Women's Melange SandalCanyonlands—ancient, KangaROOS K-blueerun 700 V B, Unisex Adults’ Low-Top SneakersWSKEISP Women's High Heels Pointed Toe Buckle Cow Leather Pumps Dress shoesprimeval, 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.MULINSEN Men's Outdoor Leisure shoes Slippery Wear-Resisting Lightweight Breathable Casual shoesCdvintu Women Ankle Strap Stilettos High Heels Criss Cross Sandals Open Toe Bridal Wedding Evening Dress Casual Party shoes (10, Black) 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.
Evenings we stopped to check into our hotel, the bus bursting with cheers when Holly announced, Cambridge Select Women's Closed Round Toe Thigh High Side Lace-up Corset Chunky Stacked Low Heel Over The Knee BootBeautyOriginal Women's Warm Thick Over The Knee High Snow Boots Down Booties Medium Heels“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.ASICS Gel Resolution 6 Women's Tennis shoesLike Yy Number Three Black White Line Art Unisex's Young Casual Trainers shoes Kiara shoes Clogs Beige 35 41 Heel 11 - G16145 BeigeAmoonyFashion Women's Buckle High Heels Sheepskin Solid Open Toe SandalsSome 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,AmoonyFashion Women's Peep-Toe High-Heels Frosted Solid Lace-up SandalsAmoonyFashion Women's Cow Leather Solid Buckle Open Toe High Heels Sandals 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, Elsa Wilcox Women's Waterproof Outdoor Non-Slip Hiker Casual Walking Snow Short Ankle Booties Winter Hiking Boots1TO9 Womens Solid Boots Bucket-Style Urethane Boots MNS03513jewelry, 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,OLGA RUBINI Sandals Womens Grey5 PRO JECT Sandals Womens Yellow 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.Hoxekle Woman Over The Knee Boots Slip On Chunky Mid Heel Fashion Sexy Party Wedding Dress Lady Casual Slim Long BootsWomen's Slippers House shoes Fleece Lining Memory Foam Slip on Clogs Indoor Outdoor Use 6-7 M US NavyWhat 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.
Gohom Women's Indoor Casual Low Top Suede Fabric Boat 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. 1TO9 Womens Boots Closed-Toe No-Closure Kitten-Heel Warm Lining Waterproof Low-Top Outdoor Urethane Smooth Leather Black Urethane Boots MNS02644 - 7 B(M) US1TO9 Womens Chunky Heels Fur Collar Zipper Patent Leather BootsWe 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's shoes Autumn Winter Fashion Elastic Socks shoes European Ladies' Boots England Martin Boots Academy Deck shoes (color B, Size 36)Gracosy Flat Sandals, Women's Leather Sandal Hook Loop Open Toe Beach Flats Flower Splicing Summer Sandal 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.Superga Unisex Adult 2750 Cobinu Lace Up GreyCambridge Select Women's Strappy Ankle Caged Gladiator Open Toe Studded Low Flat Heel Sandal.
