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 LizForm Women Cutout Studded Sandal Strappy Bridal Evening Wedding Heeled SandalsNine West Women's Bonkers Leather Fashion SneakerCanyonlands—ancient, redhco 6'' Forced Entry Tactical BootNew Balance Men's MC696 Light Weight Tennis shoesprimeval, 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.Sbicca Women's Marjorie Ankle BootHurley Womens Flex 2.0 Flip-Flop 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. Naturalizer Womens Mila Slide SandalDelicious By Soda Women's Ripley Sueded Lace Up Chunky Stacked Heel Ankle BootieSome of us took the difficult trails, others the easy trails with our guides. 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, BalaMasa Girls Double Breasted Solid Low Heels Imitated Leather BootsJack Wolfskin Women's Seven Wonders Low W Sneaker“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.Tredters Womens Komet Slide SandalColumbia Men's Buxton Peak Wide shoes Perry Ellis Mens Ryan OxfordCall It Spring Women's Arther Dress 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,Rieker Womens L.

To the Navajos who live here, this is a sacred land, Geox Men's Jaylon E Boot OxfordsDaya by Zendaya Womens Nicolette Ankle Bootrich in the ancient traditions of their ancestors, carried on to this day.
Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Propét Womens Julene Mary Jane FlatWomen Fashion Leather Sneakers Casual Lace up White Black Flat shoes High Top Hidden Heel Wedges Platform shoesjewelry, 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. Clarks Womens Gracelin Jenny Ballet FlatKenneth Cole New York Womens Kam Palm Print Lace-up Sneaker SneakerThe 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,Cambridge Select Women's Lace-Up Strappy Knee High Combat Stacked Heel BootFranco Sarto Womens Keena Pump 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.Women's Earth, Ronan Ankle BootsMUK LUKS Mens Men's Nick shoes Fashion SneakerWhat 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.
PUMA Unisex Adults’ Tsugi Apex Evoknit Low-Top Sneakers BlackThe 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.So8ooa Lady Boots Women Autumn shoes Zipper Ankle Round Toe Rome Boots Fashion Leisure Elegant Cosy Wild Tight Super Quality for WomensSteve Madden Women's Daisie Pumps.
