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 Pleaser Womens Clas3011 wpu BootWeenFashion Women's Closed-Toe Kitten-Heels Pu Low-Top Assorted color Boots, AMGXX015407Canyonlands—ancient, Adidas Womens Pure Boost X TR 2.0 Cross TrainersClarks Women’s Tri Amelia Low-Top Sneakersprimeval, 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.Ladies Women High Biker Boots 2018 Autumn and Winter New Warm Fur Lined women Snow Boots Knee High Boots Warm Non-Slip Casual Boots Large SizeGola Women's Coaster Print Sneaker 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. Winter Women Over The Knee Faux Leather Boots Slip-On Round Toe Thigh High Boots Square High Heels shoesOffice Lady High Heels Boots Shine Beading Warm shoes Women Fashion Party Wedding shoes Mid Calf BootsSome 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, LUCKY-STEP Fashion Metallic Leatherette Women Sneakers - Holographic Iridescent Casual Walking shoes with Round ToeNine West Womens Atfirst Peony 8 M“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.Sexy Thigh High Boots Women Over The Knee Boots Ladies Autumn Winter High Heels Boots Platform Plus SzieNara shoes Women's Faccia Dress Pump Massimo Matteo Womens Cross Vamp DriverBrinley Co. Womens Faux Leather Lace-up Embossed Lightweight SneakersSome 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,Ollio Women's shoes High Heel Front Twisted Ankle Strap Dress SandalVolatile Womens Abigail Wedge Sandal 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, VIC Women's Sports Fitness SneakersDexter Women's Raquel IV Bowling 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. Sugoishop Women's shoes Summer Open Toe Chain Stiletto Super High Heel SandalsMET RXL Summer,shoes Wine Glass Heels,Plush SandalsThe 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.

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 Stanley Fashion SandalsMenorca Authentic Menorcan Sandals, Beige Sole, Fantasia, Avarcas Menorquínas Abarcas, Albarcas.What 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.
