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 Womens Simple Dream Catcher Running shoes For WomenSkechers Women's Go Trail 2 - Grip Hiking shoesCanyonlands—ancient, Owaheson Platform Lace up Sneaker Casual Chunky Walking shoes Women Tennessee FlagOwaheson Platform Lace up Sneaker Casual Chunky Walking shoes Low Top Women Rocket Rainbow Cat Collecting Starsprimeval, 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.Owaheson Platform Lace up Sneaker Casual Chunky Walking shoes Low Top Women Evil Kumamoto Bear Kumamon Call SatanMiyoopark LS0659 Women's Chunky Block Low Heel Studded Bridal Wedding Evening 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.

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.ZXCVB& Pointed Toe Slingback Sandals Ankle Strap Kitten Heels Pumps Wedding GraffitiOwaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Navy Uniform Camouflage Nina Original Womens Farrah Dress PumpTDA Women's MA04157 Stylish Tassels Ankle Strap color Block Dress Party SandalsSome 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.

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,AllhqFashion Women's Zipper Round Closed Toe Low-Heels PU High-top BootsRobert Westbrook Flat Creepers Platform shoes for Woman Casual Women Punk Creeper Pattern shoes Ladies Girls 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.BalaMasa Womens Mini-Size Cold Lining Dress Leather Sandals ASL05050Propet Women's Walker LE Sneaker White 6 Wide 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.

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's Sandals Flat-Soled Slippers Summer New Korean Version Fashionable one-Word Slipper Transparent SurfaceCambridge Select Women's Thigh-High Peep Toe Open Back Stretch Stiletto High Heel Over The Knee Boot.
