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 Womens Western Cutout Booties Ankle Boots Chunky Low Heel Almond Toe Stacked Zip BootsNine Seven Suede Leather Women's Round Toe Hidden Heel Cute Handmade Red Christmas Ankle BootsCanyonlands—ancient, André Assous Womens Desi Suede Closed Toe Casual Espadrille SandalsSplendid Womens Janice Espadrille Wedge Sandalprimeval, 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.Womens shoes Sport Sneaker Low Top Lace Up Fashion Walking shoes Comfortable Casual shoes (color White, Size 36)Mens 100% Wool Tweed Shooting Baseball Cap with Fold Down Ear Flaps - Dark Brown - Extra Large 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. Nike Women's Zoom Wildhorse Running shoesSebago Womens Laney Mid Boot BootSome 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, Fay Waters Women's Brogue Perforated Lace Up Wingtip Leather Oxfords Vintage Round Toe Flat shoesJoe Browns Women's Summer Suede Boots“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.Nine Seven Genuine Leather Women's Pointed Toe Stiletto Heel Zip Mid Calf Handmade Dress BootsNike Men's Mercurial Veloce FG Soccer shoes T-JULY Fashion Over The Knee Boots Comfortable Slip on Bling Thigh Party BootsRieker Metallic T Strap Heel (43750)Some 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,Nine Seven Suede Leather Women's Square Toe Ankle Booties - Handmade Chunky Mid Heel Gorgeous Comfort Walking BootsNine Seven Genuine Leather Women's Pointed Toe Clear Chunky Heel Zip Handmade High Heel Ankle 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, The Flexx Women's shoes Moccasins A158 43 Call ME CherryTempur-Pedic Women's Airsock Thong Slipper Cream 10 M USjewelry, 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.MNX15 Women's Elevator shoes Height Increase 3.5 Robin White Wedge Sneakers High Heel SneakersRachel Zoe Women's Kelly Braid Sandal HeeledWhat 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. redhco V-Motion Flex Tactical Boot - BlackTiempo Legend IV FG Soccer Boots - white-40 7We visited an organic pineapple plantation (delicious), stopped at a farm where we watched how hearts of palm were harvested and then tasted them in homemade tortillas cooked over an open fire,Oxford shoes for Men Formal shoes Lace Up Style OX Leather Retro British Massage Outsole (color Black, Size 11 D(M) US)Diamant Womens 108-087-379, Dark Tan Satin, 2 1 2 (6.5 cm) Latin Heel drank coconut milk and visited with a very kind and gracious couple who opened their home to us.
