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 TYX-SS Men'S Business shoes DressDerby Pointed Lace Lace Leather Oxford Wedding Fashion Uniform Retro Office Summer Brock Black Brown Loafers Size 6-12Stacy Adams Mens Jemison 25149Canyonlands—ancient, ZHRUI Men Sandals Loafers Casual shoes Handmade Leather Moccasins shoes Slippers Size 46 (color Black, Size 6.5=40 EU)Easy Go Shopping Sneaker For Men Sports shoes Lace Up PU Leather Breathable Pure color Round Toe shoes Cricket shoes (color White, Size 8.5 UK)primeval, 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.Kappa Korea Ii Mid, Unisex Adults’ BootsHhgold Men's Moccasins shoes, Men's Driving Penny Minimalism Loafers Breathable Perforation Genuine Leather Upper Boot Moccasins (color Khaki, Size 39 EU) (color grey, Size 44 EU) 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.Pepe Jeans Men's Sailor Deck Twill EspadrillesXTI Men Sandals 47025 NAPA brown Military Boots Tactical Boots Army Boot Trainers Desert Durable Boots Fashion Leather Non-Slip wear-Resistant Hiking BootsLOVDRAM Men'S shoes Autumn And Winter Men'S shoes High-Top shoes Fashion Students Sports Men'S Casual 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,Nike Lady Court Force High TrainersSandals Men's Summer Outdoor Sports Breathable Beach shoes standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land. To the Navajos who live here, this is a sacred land, ECCO Men's Collin 2.0 Slip On TrainersImac Mens Leather Water Resistant Leisure Ankle Bootsrich in the ancient traditions of their ancestors, carried on to this day.
Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Easy Go Shopping Men's Ankle Boots Casual Rustproof Metal Chain Pointed Toe High Top Boot Cricket shoesYwqwdae Men Hollow out Breathable Genuine Leather Closed Toe Non Slip Sandals UK5.5-11 (color Black, Size UK 8)jewelry, 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.K-Swiss Men’s Arvee 1.5 TrainersDSFGHE Men's Running shoes Summer Quick-Drying Sneakers Outdoor Mesh Breathable Hiking Hiking shoes Rubber Non-SlipWhat 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.
