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 Creative Recreation Carda Casual Men's shoes Size Olive GreyMET RXL Summer Plus Size Mens Casual shoes Doug shoes Slip-on Man shoesCanyonlands—ancient, Bearpaw Mens Lucas Rain BootNike Shox Gravity Mens Ar1999-046primeval, 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.Propper Men's Tactical Duty Boot 8 ECCO Men's Intrinsic Toffel Thong Sandal 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. LLP LM Men's Leather shoes Dress shoes Workplace shoes A Pedal Lazy shoesDansko Womens Edith Mary Jane FlatSome 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, Ivanka Trump Womens Eria Heeled SandalSkechers Quantum Flex Country Walker Sneakers Man Sneakers Memory Foam“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.HAPPYSHOP(TM 2014 Winter Cotton Warm shoes Men's Snow Boot Martin Boots Desert Boot EUR Size 39-44 Brown2019 New Men's shoes Casual Comfort Loafers & Slip-Ons Flat Loafers Summer Comfort Hole Lazy shoes Black Brown,B,40 Metrocharm MET525-4 Men's Lace Up Perforated Wing Tip Formal Dress Casual Fashion Ankle BootsMUMUWU Men's Genuine Leather Soft Slip on Moccasin Loafers Breathable Driving shoes Fashion Slipper (color Darkbrown, Size 8.5 D(M) US)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,Nature Breeze Harley 12 Womens Military Lace up Studded Combat BootNike Zoom Stefan Janoski Black White Light Bone 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, Laredo Men's 10 Roper Toe Western BootsWTW Men's Arizona 2-Strap Cork Footbed Sandal Size 12 Blackjewelry, 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. Bernie Mev Womens Fm Lace Fashion BootBekina X210GB-6 Safety_Supply, Green, 6 M USThe 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,Adidas Women's Questar Ride RunningEnglish Laundry Mens Juniper Sneaker 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.Adidas Baby PW Tennis hu I, Sand White White, 9 Medium US ToddlerGenuine Leather Mens Casual shoes Cowhide Driving Moccasins Slip On Loafers Men Flat shoes Size 36-47What 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.

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.Nike Court Lite Clay Mens Tennis shoes 845026 Sneakers TrainersIsotoner Men's Suede Leather Moc Flat.
