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 Converse Womens CTAS Ox Mono Suede Low Top Lace Up Walking shoes1TO9 Womens Boots Closed-Toe Zip Firm-Ground Bootie Fashion Nubuck Manmade Urethane Boots MNS02468Canyonlands—ancient, CARMENS Boots Womens Suede Beige1TO9 Womens Zipper Platform Solid Pleather Flats shoes MJS02869primeval, 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.Hoohle Sports Comic Cartoon Bubbles Womens Roshe One Flex Mesh Mens Running shoesHoohle Sports Hand Drawn Dogs Breed Welsh Womens Roshe One Flex Mesh Running shoes for 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, AdeeSu Womens Casual Round-Toe Comfort Wedges Suede Boots SXC01778Nature Breeze Duck-15 Women's Knee High Lace Up Insulated Boots Half Size Small“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.OVOV Women's Square Lock Single Shoulder Bag Leather Handbag Small Crossbody Bag with ChainTDA Women's Sexy Sumber T-strap Chains Buckle Sheepskin Evening Party Dress Stiletto Sandals AdeeSu Ladies Chunky Heels Platform Buckle Fur Collar Imitated Leather BootsThalia Sodi Womens Kiarah Fabric Open Toe Special Occasion Strappy SandalsSome 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,TDA Women's Pointed Toe Snakeskin PU Evening Party Dress Sexy Stiletto shoesTop Moda Women's Cookie-1 Knee-High Quilted Leather Buckle Platform High Heeled Boot standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land.

The Grand Canyon is a place unto itself, stretching 277 miles long, 18-20 miles wide and 18 miles deep. Qupid Womens Thesis-77 Cute Flats shoesWest Blvd Womens Kinhasa Thigh High Boots Over The Knee Motorcycle Biker Riding Flat Heels shoesThe 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,Women's shoes PU Spring Summer Fall Sandals Chunky Heel Block Heel Peep Toe Buckle for Party & Evening Dress White bluee Cyan PinkWoman Ankle Boots Lace Up Round Toe Platform Ladies Plush Warm Casual Low Heel Flat Antislip Short 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.Women's Walking shoes Leather Anti-Slip Anti-Collision Water-Resistant shoes Outdoor Sports shoes Womens Knit Breathable Trainer Sneaker (color Beige, Size 7 US)Aaron M-GS-L025X Womens Sexy Comfort Fashion Wedding Party Job Mid Heel SandalsWhat 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.
T-JULY Women Fashion Vulcanize Canvas Sneakers Flats Walking Trainers Platform Wedge Casual shoesThe 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.Pink Feathers Woman Net Running shoes Cool CuteBartolini Women's Celia-1 Adjustable Double Strap Low Heeled Slide Sandal.
