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 1TO9 Womens Double Breasted Glass Diamond Sequins Cow Leather SandalsWallhewb Women Air Mesh Tenis White Platform Vulcanize shoes Female Fashion Wedges Sneakers Slip On for Women Hot Pants Rubber Sole Dress Comfortable Yellow 8.5 M US Casual shoesCanyonlands—ancient, 5 PRO JECT Sandals Womens BrownSUSIMODA Sandals Womens Suede 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.Bearpaw Womens Jordan Cold-Weather Boots Suede Closed Toe Ankle Cold WeatherHoohle Sports Anchor Imprints Boat Anchor Hook Womens Roshe One Flex Mesh Running 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.

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.1TO9 Womens Boots Low-Top Zip Ankle-Wrap No-Heel Solid Warm Lining Rubber Waterproof Manmade Smooth Leather Bootie Urethane Boots MNS02607OVOV Women's Vintage Large Tote Leather Shoulder Bag Fahsion Crossbody Bag 1TO9 Womens Boots Closed-Toe Zip Kitten-Heel Not_Water_Resistant Warm Lining Bootie Outdoor Urethane Boots MNS02440AdeeSu Womens Comfort Spikes Stilettos Round-Toe Fashion Dress Urethane Boots SXC01748Some 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 Ladies Chunky Heels Platform Zipper Imitated Leather BootsAdeeSu Womens Chunky Heels Platform Buckle Imitated Leather Boots 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, Charmarm Cool Car Men Iron Logo Mask Black Eyes Women Comfortable Rope Soled shoesWanted shoes Women's Channing Bootjewelry, basketry, rugs, and weaving representing the Navajo, Hopi, and Zuni cultures.

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.Women's Patrizia, Candace High Heel SandalQupid Varsity-01x Suede Lace Up BootiesWhat 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.
PUMA Platform Slide Bold Womens SandalsThe 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.Dirty Laundry Womens Franklin Fashion SneakerGetMine Womens Latin Dance shoes Heeled Ballroom Salsa Tango Party Sequin Dance shoes.
