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 LUXINYU Women Flat Sandals - Braided Strap, Casual Summer Flip Flop shoes, Black, Green, Black&WhiteAlicegana Women's Leather Loafers shoes Comfortable Ladies Casual Moccasins Wild Breathable Summer Nurse Driving Flats BlackCanyonlands—ancient, Ladies Party Sandals Rhinestone shoes Women Square High Heel Ankle Straps PumpsPerixir Sock Boots Woman Sexy High Heel shoes Women Black red Yellow Stretch 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.L.K. Bennett Val Glitter Heeled SandalAmoonyFashionWomens Round Closed Toe Low Heels PU Patent Leather Solid Boots with Winkle Pinker, Black, 10 B(M) US 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. Steve Madden Womens Dina Flat SandalAN Womens Square Heels Chunky Heels Platform Imitated Suede Boots DKU02741Some 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, ComeShun Womens shoes Shining Faux Suede Slides Chunky Heel Slip On Open Toe Clogs MulesBROWN MULTI Clarks Women's Leisa Field Flat Sandals“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.2 Lips Too Womens Rational Closed Toe Ankle Fashion BootsEMANUELLE VEE Sandals Womens Black CJC Sandals Women Open Toe Peep Toe Ankle Strap Wedge Heels Prom Wedding Party Court shoes (color T2, Size EU36 UK3.5 CN35)Skechers Womens Ultra Flex-brightful Day SneakerSome 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,Staheekum Women's Plush Shearling Lined Slipper MoccasinsMarc Defang New York Women's Ombre Patent Leather 3 Pointy Toe Pumps 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 Black Small Pirate Flag with Skull and Bones Womens Roshe One Flex Mesh Casual shoes MenA-BUYBEA Women's Round Toe Chunky High Heel Suede Leather Ankle Bootiesjewelry, 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. Women's Ankle Boots Suede Warm Women Casual Short shoes Winter Fashion Black Sexy Dress BootsRieker Women Flat Slipper Grey, (Clay Silver) 413G8-62The 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,AandN Womens Boots Closed-Toe Zip High-Heel Warm Lining Studded Soft Ground Bootie Dress Hard-Ground Urethane Boots DKU01806Ladola Womens Buttons Zipper High-Heel Platform Suede 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.Eora-2sl Chunky Heels Classics Women's Summer Slippers Mature Office Lady Women's shoesElsa Wilcox Women Casual Flats Walking Sports shoes Casual Slip On Loafers Fashion Sneakers Platform Sneakers Pull OnWhat 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.

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.Lalige Cat Silhouette Black Womens Casual Canvas Slip-on Walking shoesLalige Pineapples Party Womens Comfortable Canvas Slip-on Slip-ons.
