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 Black BlackBlack Reebok Classic Women's Work N Cushion 2.0 Walking shoesTan Nubuck Steve Madden Womens Sidney Heeled SandalCanyonlands—ancient, Black Vibram FiveFingers Alitza Loop Women's Running shoesRed Over The Knee Boots Thin High Heels Party shoes Women Pointed Toe Satin Bootsprimeval, 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.Waffle 12 Pairs Slippers Women and Men Disposable Portable Slippers, Women Slipper Hotel Disposable Spa Slippers Men Portable Comfortable Non-Slip Sole One Size Fit Most Men and Women Spa-- Lane Diamond Dust Boots 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. - Indian Wholesale 200 pc lot Bulk Mandala Hand Bag Ethnic Clutches Purse Shoulder for Ladies by Panchal Creation-16White pumps FASZQ shoes Woman High Heels Ladies shoes 12CM Heels Pumps Women shoes Black bluee Party Wedding shoes StilettoSome 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, Dusty pink Snake Print Sam Edelman Women's Loriane Loafer FlatsBLACK SILVER QUILTE PATENT Easy Spirit Women's Traveltime Mule“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.A Ladies' Simple and Elegant Gradient Leopard Sandals Nightclub Queen Summer Women's shoesNew-grey Dhiuow Platform shoes Women Slip on Loafers Suede Wedge shoes Comfortable Sneakers for Ladies Black Merrell Womens Siren Edge Q2 M Hiking shoesBlack Black White Vans Unisex SK8-Hi(tm) Core ClassicsSome 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.

Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Black Crocodile Marc Joseph New York Men's Mens Genuine Leather Atlantic Loafer Driving Style LoafersWhite, metallic silver Nike Jordan Kids Air Jordan 4 Retro Bg Basketball shoesjewelry, 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,Black Iridescent Pebbled Leather Naturalizer Women's Taimi Dress SandalSand Clarks Men's Trigenic Flex Lace-Up Mocassin Style shoes 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.Black Skechers Womens Rumbler Wave - Filigree - Laser-Cut Strap Mary Jane Wedge PumpBlack Merrell Women's Dassie Buckle Slip-On 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.
Hotsauce Suede Naturalizer Women's Emiline Loafer FlatThe 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. Black Minnetonka Women's Fringed MoccasinBrown Bella Vita Womens Eleanorii Fashion BootWe 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,Lipstick Bla Jessica Simpson Women's DalynDark Roast Dark Coffee Cole Haan Mens Coburn Penny Drvr Ii Penny Loafer drank coconut milk and visited with a very kind and gracious couple who opened their home to us.
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.Ebony Silver Pink Brooks Women's Ghost 11 Running shoesOff White Glerups AR Rubber shoes.
A special treat on the tour was a New Year’s Eve Party at our hotel with dinner,Whiskey Leather Yosi Samra Women's Samara Ballet FlatBlack Naturalizer Women's Gloria Pump entertainment, and fireworks.
