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 Webb Perkin Women for Women Esquare Low Heels shoes Casual Slip On Platform Lastic Boots Fashion Over The Knee BootsWomen's Ankle Boots Fall & Winter Stiletto Heel Pointed Toe Booties BurgundyCanyonlands—ancient, Bettye Muller Concept Womens Chet LoaferIron Fist Women's Wishbone Cleated Sole Flatprimeval, 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.Kirabon Ladies High Heels Thick with High Heel Suede Pointed Sexy Thin color Rhinestone shoes (color Grey, Size 36)GEORPE Over The Knee Boots Platform Side Zipper Closed Thin Heels Thigh High 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, So8ooa Lady Slippers Women Fashion Black Classic Crystal Cuff Button Rectangle Wild Clothes White Steel color gold ButtonVionic Women's Edie Casual Sneakers in Silver“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.Isotoner Jersey Luna Women's Summer Thong Slippers Flip Flop Style with Foam CushionLadies Ankle Boot,Pointed Stretch Boots Thick Heel Socks Boots Fashion Short Boots High-Heeled Ladies Martin Boots Women Over The Knee Boots Thigh High Winter Warm Zipper Dress shoes Pointed Toe Super High HeelWomen's Sandals - Super high Heel Stiletto Platform Sequined Women's 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.

Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Sol Sana Womens Legend Mule MuleAthena Alexander Womens Ying Wedge Sandaljewelry, 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. Sam Edelman Women's Camilla Wedge SandalCambridge Select Women's Buckled Ankle Strap Low Block Heel SandalThe 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,Aerosoles Womens WEST River Ankle BootT-JULY Fall Boots Fashion Thick Heel Ankle Boots Women High Heels Autumn Winter shoes Fur Black Platform 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.Victoria's Secret Credver Comfort Slide Glossy Pure Black - Small 5 6FSJ Women Slip On Ankle Booties Peep Toe Chunky Block Heels Sandals Faux Suede shoes Size 4-15 USWhat 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.
Clarks Womens Annadel Danae Wedge SandalThe 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.High Heels Fringe Riding Boots Woman Square Heel Round Toe shoes Flock Fashion Women shoes Knee-High BootHoxekle Women Snow Boot Winter Warm Plush Fur Short Boots Thick Platform Soft Suede Round Toe Casual Outdoor Walking shoes.
