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 Faceplant Dreams Here Comes The Bride Yellow Bow Slippers FootsiesCJC Sandals Lady's Womens Sport Wedge Heel Peep Toe shoesCanyonlands—ancient, WeenFashion Women's PU Short Plush Lining Low Heels Solid Knee-High Boots with Metal BucklesAmoonyFashion Women's Soft Leather Buckle Pointed-Toe Low-Heels Solid Sandalsprimeval, 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.AmoonyFashionWomens Round Closed Toe Kitten Heels PU Short Plush Assorted color Boots with Platform, bluee, 7.5 B(M) USAllhqFashion Women's Peep Open Toe Sheepskin High Heels Solid Sandals with Stiletto 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. AdeeSu Womens Square Heels Chunky Heels Platform Imitated Suede Boots SXC03849ERMAN'S Oxfords-shoes Womens Leather BlackSome 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, Skechers Womens Ultra Flex-brightful Day SneakerJiang Women's shoes Summer Korean Sweet Thick-Soled Roman Sandals Flat High-Heeled Platform shoes Wedges Fish Mouth Sandals Sandals 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.18 KT Pumps-shoes Womens blueeSkechers Womens D'Lites Ultra-Unicorn Posse - Rhinestone Double Strap Slingback Sandal Sandal Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Womens Ashton Ankle BootGhapwe Women's Trendy Lace Splicing Round Toe High Block Heel Platform Thigh High Riding Boots with Side Zipper White 8 M USSome 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,Summer-lavender Open Toe Black Sandals Woman Platform shoes Thick Heels Sandals Sexy Soft Leather Women's shoesHi-Tec Womens Equilibrio Bijou Low I Hiking 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, WALKSAN by SUSIMODA Loafers-shoes Womens Leather BlackAandN Womens Pumps-shoes Closed-Toe Zip Kitten-Heel Warm Lining Fringed Not_Water_Resistant Track Nubuck Cushioning Urethane Pumps shoes DKU01788jewelry, 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,Ladola Womens Buttons Zipper High-Heel Platform Suede BootsWomen's high Heel shoes, Summer Sandals, European and American Toes, and Big Size Sandals. 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.York Zhu Womens Martin Boots,Femininas Winter Snow Boots Ankle Boots Low TopPUMA Womens Basket Platform NS WN's Running 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.

We saw a wide variety of animals including sloths, crocodiles, monkeys, otters, turtles, iguanas, king fishers, toucans, and every imaginable bird, flower, and butterfly.
