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 Tiempo Legend V (Red White)Hades shoes H-Monarch Industrial Metal Butterfly HeelCanyonlands—ancient, Tretorn - Eva Lag Black 472953OLUKAI Nakue - Women's Adjustable Strap Sandalsprimeval, 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.Arcopedico Women's ES Slip On BlackDonald J Pliner Women's Nelly-E Motorcycle Boot 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 Air Huarache Run Ultra Low-Top SneakersVionic Women's Joy Serena Ankle Boot - Ladies Ankle Boots with Concealed Orthotic Arch SupportSome 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, MARC ELLIS Women's 1824053BLACK Black Velvet Ankle BootsMarc Defang New York Women's AB & Red Crytals Ombre 3 Pointed Toe Pumps“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.MARC ELLIS Women's DIVAWHITEgold White Leather SneakersMerrell Womens Chameleon 7 Mid Waterproof Hiking shoes Loeffler Randall Women's Clem (Crinkle Metallic Gem) SandalUZU Women's MCGLCAT000005041E White Leather 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,White Mountain Womens Datenight MuleHigh Heels Over The Knee Boots Thick with Women's Back Lacing Knee High Boots Pointed Zipper Thigh High Waterproof Platform Boots Large Size Comfortable Warm 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, Vince Camuto Women's Parka Leather Above the Knee Leather BootFrye Women's Natalie Short Engineer Lug Engineer Bootsjewelry, 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. L.K. Bennett Womens Erin MuleRebecca Minkoff Women's Giov Point Toe Ruffle MulesThe 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,PEPEpink Women's N7101NAVY bluee Suede Lace-Up shoesTahari Bounty Platform Dress Sandals Pink 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.Saucony Men's Soarin J Spike Track shoesMiguelito 1600 Women's Flamenco Dance shoesWhat 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.
Pelle Moda Women's Eden Dress Sandal BeigeThe 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.GIANLUCA - L'ARTIGIANO DEL CUOIO Women's 1801BROWN Brown Leather SandalsJANET SPORT Women's JSPO43908 White Leather Sandals.
