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 Sam Edelman Women's Gardenia Gladiator SandalKeds Womens Kickstart Glitter Wool Fashion SneakerCanyonlands—ancient, Yellow Box Denisha Women's SandalAIWEIYi Womens Pointed Toe Ankle High Boots Ladies Platform High Block Heel Black Bootiesprimeval, 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.10 Crosby Women's Celeste BootThe New Female Summer Thick with Sandals Thin Belt Matte Leather Square Head with Small Size Women's shoes Women Pumps 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.

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, JOYBI Women Casual Flat Loafers shoes Breathable Striped Slip-On Comfort Spring Round Toe EspadrillesWinter Ladies Thick Heel High Heel Women's Boots Large Size PU Leather Warm Imitation Leather Lining“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.Luxury Rebel Women's Greta Leather LoaferWFFXLL Women's shoes Retro High Heels Square Head Mary Jane shoes Literary Wild Casual shoes Work Professional shoes 34-39 Yards Women's shoes (color Black, Size 39 EU) Elezay Women's Top Handle Satchel Handbags Shoulder Bag Tote Purse with 120cm Removable StrapWeenFashion Women's Zipper Pu Open-Toe High-Heels Solid Sandals, CA18LB04159Some 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,AllhqFashion Women's Imitated Suede Low Top Solid Lace-up High Heels BootsWomen Vintage Chunky Square High Heels Faux Leather Ankle Zipper Booties 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, Clarks Women's Palma Rylie BootSandals for Women's, Comfort Block Heel Pump Dress Sandals Minimalism Slippers Summer Slippers Kitten Heel Pointed Toe Stiletto Heel Pointed Toe,Green,34jewelry, 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,Real Leather Ankle Boots Women Round Toe Rivet Flower Women LuxuryGIY Womens Wedge Platform Oxfords Loafers shoes Comfort Casual Slip on High Heel Loafer 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.Get-in Slippers Closed Toe Mules Women Sandals Wooden Heel Slippers Women Sliders shoes Female Mules Fashion HeelOllio Women's shoes Ballet Pointed Toe Pastel Low FlatWhat 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.
Adidas Madoru Womens Running Sneakers shoesThe 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.GIY Women's Chunky Block High Heel Rhinestone Ankle Boots Suede Platform Zipper Bootie Dress Short BootsGIY Women's Bohemian Strappy Platform Wedges Sandals Peep Toe Chunky High Heel Zipper Beads Sandals.
