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 CCBubble High Heels Women shoes Satin Party Stiletto Pumps WomenSomethingoods Women shoes New Women Vulcanize shoes Sneakers Off White PU Graffiti Shallow Casual shoes WomenCanyonlands—ancient, HCHBE& Fashion Skin Pattern Pumps high Heels Spring Summer Pointed Toe Party Sexy shoes Elegant Snake Women shoes bluee 5KemeKiss Women Fashion Wedge Heel Pumps Lace Upprimeval, 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.URUNIQUE Women House Slippers Indoor Cotton Knitted Autumn Winter Closed Toe Anti-Slip Solid color Classical House SlipperPVC Woman Slippers shoes Peep Toe Solid Ankle-Wrap Summer Ladies Sandals Super High Thin Heels Pumps 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. AicciAizzi Women Fashion Slip On Heels PumpsBIONGTY& 35-45 Summer Sandals Women Comfortable Summer Women Sandals Flat Big SizeSome 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, Gohom Women's Long Fur Curly Slip-On Slippers Indoor shoesBeautiful - Fashion Womens Wedge Platform Sneakers High Top Height Increased Rubber Sole Lace Up Walking Sport 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.Puma TFX Sprint V3 Running SpikesBadgley Mischka Womens Gail Heeled Sandal Fashion shoesbox Women's Leather Loafers shoes Comfortable Round Toe Ladies Casual Moccasins Wild Breathable Driving FlatsWomens Sneakers Canvas Slip On Flat Low Cut Fashion Mule Sneaker 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,Minitoo QJ7031 Women's Mesh Buckle Ankle Wrap Synthotic Latin Dance shoesWarm Slippers - Couple Slippers Indoor Home Non-Slip Pink PU Slippers Women (Size 38-39) 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, RizaBina Women Winter Boots Pull OnWomen Motorcycle Mid Heel Punk Buckle Side Zipper Combat Military Ankle Bootiesjewelry, 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.
We then began our downward trek from almost 8,000 feet, the Colorado Plateau,Pit4tk Women Sandals Summer shoes Genuine Leather Ladies Comfortable Flat SandalsKemeKiss Women Fashion Chunky High Heel Platform 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.AGOWOO Women's Faux Fur Pull On Strap Flat Thong Jeweled SandalsSuper frist Women's Stylish Satin Ballroom Morden Salsa Latin Tango Party Wedding Professional Dance 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.
Autumn Winter Women Matte Flock Boots Height Increased Low Heel shoes Woman Mid Calf High BootsThe 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.Ellie shoes BP553-LOGAN-L 5 Heel Close Toe Pump shoesWeenFashion Women's Imitated Suede Spikes Stilettos Pointed Toe Pumps with Metalornament and Glitter.
