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 Red(Patent Leather) AnMengXinLing Over The Knee Boot Women Pointy Toe Stiletto High Heel Stretchy Leather Party Dress Thigh High Snow BootiesAubergine Combi Clarks Women's Tarah Brae PumpCanyonlands—ancient, Energy orange Adidas Performance Women's PureboostNavy Imsu Soda Women's Mug Round Toe Faux Suede Stacked Heel Western Ankle Bootie Khakiprimeval, 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.Black Nb Delicious Women's Blade Dress Casual Club Ankle Strap Closed Toe PumpsLight Grey Franco Sarto Womens Takoma Ankle Boot 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, Brown Fly London Women's Salv BootClassic Nude Dress Nappa Leather Sam Edelman Women's Odila Fashion Sandals“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.Light Brown-1 Moodeng House Slippers Men and Women Shower Sandal Slipper Indoor Slide Bath shoes Unisex for BathroomGrey (Silver 000) Buffalo Women's Corin Low-Top Sneakers Red Leather Aerosoles Womens Valet Park Heeled SandalGunsmoke True Berry Nike - WMNS Air Zoom Winflo 5Some 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, Red Pu Cambridge Select Women's Classic Open Toe Ankle Strap Chunky Platform Wedge SandalSilver INC International Concepts Womens Kaison Leather Pointed Toe Ankle Strap D-Or.jewelry, 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,Grey AnMengXinLing Ankle Boot Women Block High Heel Platform Genuine Leather Pointed Toe Back Zipper Dress Flower Chelsea BootiesWHITE BLACK-METALLIC SILVER Nike Men's Air Jordan 5 Retro Basketball 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.- adidas Ultraboost X Womens Real purplec Legend InkBlack+red+white AI BAO Women's Leather Bat Bag Stylish Hit color Shoulder Diagonal Bag Tote Package HandbagWhat 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.
