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 Nature Breeze FF40 Women Faux Suede Harness Buckle Chunky Heel Bootie - BrownSkechers Womens Flex Appeal 3.0-High Tides SneakersCanyonlands—ancient, Men Women Trainers Lace-up Running shoes Lightweight Honeycomb Tech Shock Absorption Outdoor Breathable Casual Walking shoesAmoonyFashion Women's Open-Toe Low-Heels Soft Material Studded Buckle 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.Webb Perkin Women Rhinestones Zipper Sexy shoes Pointed Toe Fashion Female Boot Lady Ankle Boots Thin High HeelRiva Womens Ladies Cala Leather Strappy Slingback 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. OLGA RUBINI Boots Womens BlackOLGA RUBINI Oxfords-shoes Womens Leather blueeSome 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, Staheekum Women's Plush Shearling Lined Slipper MoccasinsMarc Defang New York Women's Patent Leather 4 Sandal Heels with 1 2 Platforms“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 SilverHoohle Sports Surprised Cute Cat Face White Background Women Roshe One Flex Mesh Men Running shoes T-JULY Women Summer Slippers Solid Wedges Platform Clogs Soft Genuine Leather Beach SandalsSummer-lavender Open Toe Black Sandals Woman Platform shoes Thick Heels Sandals Sexy Soft Leather Women's 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,KAANAS Womens Belem Knot Flat Fashion Slide Sandal Slide SandalElsa Wilcox Women Slip-On Studded Retro Mid Block Heel Dress Pumps Classic Square Toe Oxfords Loafers 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, 1TO9 Womens Boots Closed-Toe Lobster-Claw Heeled Warm Lining Solid Nubuck Road Special-Occasion Cushioning Soft-Toe Urethane Boots MNS02638MET RXL Embellished&Embroidered,Square Head,Rough with,A Word of Cold Drag Lady,Summer,Middle Heel Slippersjewelry, 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,FSJ Sexy Peep Toe Platform Pumps Stilettos High Heels for Women Prom shoes Size 4-15Ellie shoes Women's 609-MYA 6 Faux Wood Platform Mule 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.J Slides Womens Great SneakerInov-8 Women's F-Lite 235 Fitness 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.
AdeeSu Womens Casual Slip-Resistant Rhinestones Comfort Urethane Boots SXC01797The 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.Lalige Big Ear Monkey Women Funny Canvas Slip-on Travel shoesLalige Blooming Flowers Womens Vintage Canvas Slip-on Slip-ons.
