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 AmoonyFashion Women's Low Heels Frosted Solid Zipper Open Toe SandalsAmoonyFashion Women's Open-Toe High-Heels Frosted Solid Buckle SandalsCanyonlands—ancient, HANBINGPO Luxury Brand Women Pumps Pointed Toe Flower Heel Wedding shoes Women Elegant Silk Brand Design High Heels Ladies Pumps,Red Pumps,3.5Cdvintu Women Ankle Strap Stilettos High Heels Criss Cross Sandals Open Toe Bridal Wedding Evening Dress Casual Party shoes (10, Black)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.Tamaris 23633, Women's Low-Top SneakersECCO shoes Womens Shape 55 Plateau Quilted Boot Fashion 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. Rocket Dog Women's Satire Lewis BootsWomen's Snow Boots Winter Warm Boots Flat Heel Round Toe Ankle Boots No-Slip shoesSome 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, AmoonyFashion Women's Solid PU Low Heels Open Toe Lace Up SandalsNature Breeze Women Leatherette Quilted Strap Calf High Riding Boot BD74 - Sand“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.QueenFashion Women's Sweet Style colorant Match Ankle Boots with Metal Buckles and RivetsAmoonyFashion Women's Soft Leather Open Toe High-Heels Buckle Solid Sandals Women's Fuzzy Warm & Cozy Feet House Washable Soft Slippers Socks Non-Slip SoleHEETIST Women's Round Toe Faux Suede Fur Loafers with Buckle Indoor Outdoor Warm House Slippers Flats 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. Stark red stone pillars of all shapes arose throughout the desert,MVE shoes Women's Ideal Low Heel Dress Pump shoesRoper Womens Brie Western Boot 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, LAURA BIAGIOTTI Fashion-Sneakers Womens BlackLAURA BIAGIOTTI Sandals Womens Blackjewelry, 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,AN Womens Square Heels Chunky Heels Square-Toe Imitated Suede Boots DKU02751Hoohle Sports Happy Dog with Bowl Women Roshe One Flex Mesh Casual shoes for Men 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.Nine West Womens Gallmeyer Leather Dress SandalGohom Women's Indoor Casual Low Top Suede Fabric Boat 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.
Skechers Womens Ultra Flex-brightful Day SneakerThe 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.Ghapwe Women's Stylish Pointed Toe Medium Block Heels Lace Up Zipper Up Knee High Riding Boots Black 8 M USWomen's Shining Sole Rhinestone Sequins Casual Wedge Platform High Heel Antislip Ladies Summer Leisure Sandals.
