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 Rocket Dog Womens Jazzin Canvas Lace Up shoes Navy Size UK 7 EU 40BERTERI Women's Round Head Square Heel Boot Side Zipper Bootie Distinctive and FashionCanyonlands—ancient, Women's Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Lo Top Black Monochrome Canvas shoes Womens 8.5CYBLING Women's Winter Platform Boots Stiletto High Heel Motorcycle Boots Lace Up Ankle Bootieprimeval, 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.Women's Fashion Wedge with Fish Mouth Sandals High to Help High Heels Sleeve Overshoes (color B, Size 5.5 US)OTBT Women's Green Lake Dark Bronze sneakers-and-athletic-shoes 5.5 M 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, Uerescha Women's Peep Toe Lace and Sequins Ankle Bootie Zip Platform High Heel Bridal Wedding shoesWinter Snow Boots Waterproof Plush Cotton-Padded shoes Women Motorcycle Martin Boots shoes 34-43“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.T-JULY Flats shoes for Women's Casual Pointed Toe Ballet Comfort Dress Slip OnSAMSAY Women's Kitten Block Heels Ankle Strap Pointy Toe Sandals Dress Pumps BODENSEE Unisex Adult Sneakers Athletic Sports Lace Up Lightweight Breathable Walking Trail Running shoesCity Classified Suntan-s Women's Peep Toe Strappy Caged Ankle Wedge Heel Bootie SandalSome 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,Beast Fashion Carter-05 Women D'Orsay Slip On Pointy Cap Toe Extreme Cut Out Ankle Flat BootieExing Women's shoes PU(Polyurethane) Summer Comfort Slouch Boots Slippers Casual Velcro Low Heel Round Toe Roman Style Wedge Heel shoes Sandals 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, Material Girl Womens Darcell Round Toe Over Knee Riding Boots1TO9 Womens Heeled-Sandals T-Bar Jewels Urethane Heeled Sandals MJS03028jewelry, 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,SFSYDDY Popular shoes Tiptoe Stiletto Martin Boots 11 cm High Beaded Rivets Handsome Personality Front Zipper Sexy Jumper Short BootsSam Edelman Women's Henna 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.Mootsie Tootsies - Cathleena - Women's FlatsWomen's Fashion shoes Spring & Fall Platform High Heels Deep-Mouth shoes Wedding Party & Evening Walking shoes (color Black, Size 39)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.
Walking Cradles Womens Theta 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.AllhqFashion Women's Open Peep Toe Sheepskin Kitten Heels Solid Sandals with Mesh LeggingWomen's Over The Knee Boots Lace Up with Zipper High Chunky Heel Round Toe Female Sexy Winter Long Party Boots.
