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 Fashion Rain Boots Non-Slip Boots Adult Water shoes Student Rubber shoes Martin The Lacing Design Rain Boots WomenReebok Womens One Distance 2.0 Avon Running shoesCanyonlands—ancient, LAURA BIAGIOTTI Fashion-Sneakers Womens Black18 KT Pumps-shoes Womens Leather Beigeprimeval, 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.QUEEN SHOES Pumps-shoes Womens Suede BrownHoohle Sports Green Shamrock Spider Plants Womens Roshe One Flex Mesh Casual shoes Men 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.

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, Gedigits Women shoes Summer Women Platform Sneakers Heel Increasing Women shoes Wedge Casual shoes Breathable Mesh shoes White 7 M USArtfaerie Womens Pointed Toe Stiletto High Heels Pumps Evening Party Dress Court 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.Winging Women Cool Black And White Checkerboard Fashionable Canvas Sneakers shoesA&N Womens Boots Closed-Toe Lace-Up Adjustable-Strap Kitten-Heel Warm Lining Bootie Cushioning All-Weather Urethane Boots DKU01766 DKNY Mattie Flat Knee-High Boots, Black Suede1TO9 Womens Boots Closed-Toe High-Heel Hard Ground Manmade Urethane Light-Weight Bootie Urethane Boots MNS02467Some 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,AdeeSu Womens Casual Slip-Resistant Rhinestones Comfort Urethane Boots SXC01797MET RXL Ladies high Heels Fine with Occupational shoes Elegant Pointy 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, ALOTUS Unisex Memory Foam Warm Soft Slipper Booties Thick Faux Fur Lined Suede Indoor OutdoorSkechers Womens Gratis - High-Class Sneakerjewelry, 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.

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.Nurse Mates Women's Vigor Medical Professional shoesWest Blvd Phoenix Slouch Fold Over Cuffed Slouchy Flat Knee High BootsWhat 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.
Soft Style by Hush Puppies Women's Dustie Pump BlackThe 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.Rieker Women slippers bluee, (navy marine) 46300-14Paw Stuffed Animal Womens Cool Design Running shoes Unique Comfortable.
