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 Btrada Women High Platform Wedges Sneakers Hidden Heel Height Increasing Female Casual Flats shoesReef Women's Cushion Bounce Court LE SandalCanyonlands—ancient, Cambridge Select Women's Slip-On Closed Round Toe Glitter Platform Flatform Creeper SneakerSpring Autumn shoes Woman Pointed Toe Over The Knee Boot Ladies Thick High Heel Thigh High Bootsprimeval, 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.WeenFashion Women's PU Cotton Lining High Chunky Heels colorant Match Ankle Boots with Lace-upAmoonyFashion Women's Open Toe Zipper Leather Handmade Solid Kitten-Heels Sandals 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. AmoonyFashionWomens Round Closed Toe Low Heels Imitated Suede Solid Boots with Metalornament and Platform, Black, 8 B(M) USSummer-lavender Quality Mature Women's Spring Mules Black High Heels Pleated shoes Woman SlippersSome 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, LUXINYU Women Flat Sandals - Braided Strap, Casual Summer Flip Flop shoes, Black, Green, Black&WhiteMAGILONA Women Men's Unisex Cotton Slipper Winter Lining Home shoes Casual Indoor & Outdoor Soft Non-Slip Sole 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.OLGA RUBINI Boots Womens Suede Black2 STAR Loafers-shoes Womens bluee Hush Puppies Womens Ladies Gillia Chrysta Slip On SandalsFaceplant Dreams Here Comes The Bride Yellow Bow Slippers FootsiesSome 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,Nature Breeze FF40 Women Faux Suede Harness Buckle Chunky Heel Bootie - BrownSkechers Women's Flex Appeal 2.0 - Last Word Ankle-High Running shoes 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, Hoohle Sports Summer Beach Trip Womens Roshe One Flex Mesh Men Running shoesHoohle Sports Shamrock Plant Live Green Womens Roshe One Flex Mesh Mens Running 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.

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,Splendid Women's Carla Ankle BootMET RXL Lady,Spring,Middle Heels,Nude shoes Rough with,Word,Square Head 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.STEVEN by Steve Madden Womens Nylah Heeled SandalORIOCX YECLA GREY SHOE TREKKING T-39What 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.
