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 Summer-lavender Ankle Boots Women Platform shoes Round Toe Short Boots High Heels Lacing Buckle Black Punk BootsWeiPoot Women's Blend Materials Solid Closed-Toe Boots with Embroidered and PlatformCanyonlands—ancient, Joogo Women's Fashion Ladies Pointed Toe High Heel Slim Stiletto Pumps Dress shoesWomen High Heels Peep-Toe Cross Strap Hollow Thick Heel Black Fashion 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.Pophight Womens Loafers shoes with Buckle Soft Retro Slippers Flats Round Toe Dark BrownHigh-Heeled shoes Waterproof Platform Large Size Women's shoes Thick with High Heels Ladies Single 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.

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, KUIBU Women Lightweight Sport Breathable Frenulum Slipon Casual Toning shoes Mesh Clunky Sneaker AthleticRocket Dog Womens Jumpin Disco Lace Up Trainer gold Size UK 8 EU 41“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.PUMA Women's Radiate XT Sneaker, Pondepink Pine, 10.5 M USEasy Spirit Womens Aubree2 Flat FUN.S Women Platform Winter Fashion Riding Boots Woman shoes Knee High BootsT-JULY Sandal for Women Pointed Toe Ankle Strap Pumps High Heels Spring Suede Leather Stiletto Gladiator Sexy Breathable 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,Spicy Women's F815 Slip-On Lace-Up Moccasin Loafer Driving Boat shoesThemost Snow Boots Women's Suede Leather Sheepskin Fur Lining Winter Boot Walk Ankle Booties Pink 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, Sandals for Women Artificial PU Open Toe Stiletto Heels Fashion lace-up Sandals Spring NewWeiPoot Women's Pull-on High-Heels Cow Leather Solid Open 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,IWlxz Women's Patent Leather Spring & Summer Classic Heels Stiletto Heel Round Toe Buckle gold SilverWeenFashion Women's Pull On Open Toe Low Heels Solid Sandals 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.AdeeSu Womens Sequin Slip-Resistant Smooth Leather Solid Suede Pumps shoes SDC036141TO9 Womens Platform Solid Fashion Urethane Boots MNS03410What 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.
AdeeSu Womens Solid Travel Structured Urethane Sandals SLC04213The 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 Fashion Suede Knight Boots 2018 Winter Low Heel Tassels and Knee Boots Size 28-52Women High Heels Peep-Toe Zipper Fashion Simple Sandals 11CM.
