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 Adidas ORIGINALS Women's Samoa Fashion Running shoesDormery New Sucrb Leather Women Over The Knee Boots Lace Up Sexy Hoof Heels Women shoes Soild Winter Warm Size 34-43Canyonlands—ancient, Report Womens Baldwyn Ballet FlatWestern Peak Women's Aztec Design Full Rhinestones Cross Concho Maroon Turquoise Beige Flip Flop 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.New Sandals PVC Crystal Heel Sexy Bright High Heels Sandals Peep Toe Pumps T-Strap shoes,Black,5ANGERT& Open Toe High-Heeled Sandals Women Big Size Tie Butterfly Bowknot Wedding 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. ONCEFIRST Unisex Cowhide Sandals Flip Flop Summer Beach SlippersSkechers Womens Monarchs - Daisy Dukes Wedge SandalSome 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, YNN 10 Pairs Disposable Cloth Slippers, Padded, Portable Non-Slip Slippers, Four Seasons Waterproof for Hotel Aircraft Travel Home Party GuestMeiguiyuan Women Pumps shoes Sandals Slip on Square High Heel shoes Patchwork Autumn Women Shallow 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.AllhqFashion Women's Lace-up Round Closed Toe Kitten-Heels PU Low-top BootsWhite Island Women Flat Ballet shoes Bling Crystal Pointed Toe Flats shoes Elegant Comfortable Lady Shiny shoes,Red,6 Drew Toby Women Pumps Sexy Shallow Mouth Pointed Toe Hollow Fashion SlippersUnm Women Fashion High Heels Boots Knee High Extra SizeSome 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,Franco Sarto Womens Hadden Loafer FlatBtrada Womens Fashion Heeled Sandals Open Toe Ankle Strap Design Summer Roman Dress shoes for Ladies 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, AmoonyFashion Women's Open Toe Kitten Heels Buckle Solid with Metal Piece SandalsAmoonyFashion Women's Spikes Stilettos Soft Material Solid Buckle Peep Toe Sandalsjewelry, 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,WeenFashion Women's High-Heels Soft Material Low-top Solid Zipper BootsWeenFashion Women's Round Closed Toe High-Heels Soft Material Solid Buckle 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.Little SU High Heel Sandals Appliques Snake Texture Ankle Strap shoes Gladiator Sandals shoesWomens Wedge Sneakers Casual Soft Sole Cotton Fabric Lace Up Low Top Athletic Running Walking 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.

We saw a wide variety of animals including sloths, crocodiles, monkeys, otters, turtles, iguanas, king fishers, toucans, and every imaginable bird, flower, and butterfly.
