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 Dolwins Womens Classic Stiletto Heel Slingback Pumps Dress shoesXIUWU Women's Mules Pumps shoes Pointed Toes Slipper High Heels SandalsCanyonlands—ancient, AVENBER Women's Slide Sandals Block Chunky Heel Platform Peep Toe Slip on Mules Clogs Summer shoesMicca Bacain Woman Fashion High Heels Sandals Peep Toe Slingbacks Buckle Strap Comfort Solid Plus Size34-43primeval, 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.Style & Co. Shanna Women's Open Toe Wedge shoes (10, Deep Pacific)WeenFashion Women's Low-Heels Soft Material Solid Lace-up Round Closed Toe Pumps-shoes 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. WeenFashion Women's PU Assorted color Buckle Peep Toe High-Heels Heeled-SandalsXinind Stylish Self-Designed Flat Unisex Mens Sport shoes Running Mens Walking shoesSome 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, Freewander Ultra Mesh Girls Athletic Sneakers Ladies Casual shoesWomens High-Top Canvas Sneakers pink Skull Painting Flat Anti-slip Walking Trainers 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.Super explosion Fashion Women's Comfort Lace-up Zipper Platform Chunky High Heel Ankle BootsReebok Classic GL 6000 Wrap Womens Sneakers shoes Advocator colorful Leopard Designer Light Weight Lace up Sneakers Running shoesCoollight Affair Toe Stiletto High Heel Fur Slip On Pump Slide shoes Work shoes PumpsSome 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,Bigcardesigns Womens Fashion Running shoes Sneakers Lace UpDC Women's Studio LTZ Fashion Sneaker standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land. To the Navajos who live here, this is a sacred land, Groove Women's Taila Gladiator SandalAN Womens Baguette-Style Mini-Size Cold Lining Urethane Sandals DIU00795rich in the ancient traditions of their ancestors, carried on to this day.
Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Kinmi37 Womens Evening Sandal Rhinestone Dress-shoesINC International Concepts Womens Zetef Pointed Toe Ankle, Storm bluee, Size 7.5jewelry, 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,AIYOUMEI Women's Round Toe Bootie Thick Heel Autumn Winter Ankle Bootie with BowtieEuropean and American Autumn and Winter Female Short Boots Big Size Women 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.Sam Edelman Women's Carrin Ballet FlatNine West Women's GLASSLIPR Fabric Heeled SandalWhat 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.
