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 Franco Sarto Womens Corie Combat BootBaffin Women's Snobunny Snow BootCanyonlands—ancient, Converse Unisex Chuck Taylor All Star HI shoesFila Womens Venom Low Leather Textile Trainersprimeval, 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.Nineseven Genuine Leather Women's Round Toe Super High Heel Handmade Slip On Platform shoesCJC shoes Female Leather Slope Casual shoes (color 2, Size EU35 UK3) 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. Reef Rover XT Womens Sandals UK 4 blueshpink Petals by Walking Cradles Women's Prom,Black Teardrop Print Black Patent,USSome 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, Women's Booties, Thick High Heel Side Zipper Leather Fashion Boots Ladies Pointed Martin Boots (color A, Size 36)BCBGeneration Nerissa Women US 6.5 Tan Wedge Heel“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.BUENO Women's Turner in Pale Pink LeatherCarlos by Carlos Santana Women's Harper Boot Nine Seven Genuine Leather Women's Pointed Toe Low Chunky Heel Handmade Mary Jane Slide PumpsYDN Women Pointed Toe Slip on Comfort Pumps Mid Chunky Heels Dress Vcut shoesSome 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,QianZuLian Women Slender High Heels Pumps Pointed Toe Stilettos for Natural BeautyReebok - Women's Freestyle Hi Cb Bs7859 Sneakers 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, Highest Heel The Women's Rampage-11 Thigh-High BootBtrada Women's Fashion Punk Martin shoes Qulaity Suede Wedges High Heels Platform Ankle Boots Zip Bootiesjewelry, 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. Adidas Mens N-5923 Textile TrainersSanita Womens Original Pro - Tinsel MuleThe 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,BitterMoonHeel APPR.7 Metal Heel Pointed Toe lace up Ankle Boots Patent Sexy AnkleJeffrey Campbell hOMG Hi Tops Platform shoes Womens Khaki White Trainers 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.Pointed Toe High Heels 12cm Women Pumps OfficeAlexis Leroy Women's Pearls Buckle Strap Open Toe Platform SandalsWhat 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.
Hoxekle Women Knee High Boots Snakeskin Design Black Concise Winter Warm Women Outdoor Pointed-ToeThe 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.Women's Knit Boots Knit Boots Stretch Skinny Legs Red Sox Boots Women's BootiesWomen's Booties, Leather Fashion Martin Boots Ladies Thick Heel Short Heel Pointed Zipper shoes (color Black, Size 34).
