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 BalaMasa Ladies Outdoor Low Heels Cold-Weather Imitated Leather BootsWomen Open Toe Ankle Strap Transparent Sandals High Heels shoes Gladiator Roman SandalsCanyonlands—ancient, WeenFashion Womens Open Toe Kitten Heel Cow Leather Patent Leather Solid Sandals with Glass Diamond, White, 7.5 B(M) USFashion Heel Womens Low Heel Round Toe Long Fur Winter Boot Above The Knee Snow Boot with Buckle Blackprimeval, 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 Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Horse Riding Equestrian PerformanceOwaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Vicious Gorilla Face 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. Owaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Belize FlagOwaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Labrador Retriever Craving Eyes in DarkSome 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, Womens Comfort Chunky Sandals Glaring Rhinestone Pretty Leisure Dress shoes L017Rampage Women's Kamden Dress Sandal“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.Owaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens German Flag National EmblemPhil Betty Women's Pumps，Anti-Slip Ankle Strap Kitten Heel bluee Black Closed-Toe shoes Sanuk Womens Furreal Slide Slide SandalWanted Pierre - Black Laser Cut Slip-On Platform SneakerSome 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,Eora-2sl Summer Ladies shoes peep Toe Shallow Elegant Mules shoes Heel 5.5cm Women SlippersASO-SLING Women Fashion Leather Wedges Sneakers Casual Lace up Flat High Top Hidden Heel shoes 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, A-LING Womens Casual Bowknot Moccasins Driving Loafers Slip on Flat shoesAnMengXinLing Women Over The Knee Boots Thigh High Tall Booties Platform High Heel Round Toe Side Zipper Snow Boots Winterjewelry, 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. Owen Moll Women Pumps, Fashion Solid Flock Shallow Buckle Pointed Toe Office Sandal shoesClarks Womens CloudSteppers Step Glow Lite FlatsThe 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,Owen Moll Women Pumps, Elegant Pointed Toe Crystal Bling Thin High Heels Wedding shoesWomen Leatherette Open Toe Cutout Double Buckle Footbed Sandal EB65 - Tan 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.Skechers Womens goldie - Glitchy.

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. 1TO9 Womens Spikes Stilettos Pointed-Toe Ankle-Wrap Silver Urethane Pumps shoes - 5.5 B(M) USJFBZS-sandals Sand Slippers Summer New Korean Edition Flower Thick-Soled Sand Slippers Anti-Skid Sand SlippersWe visited an organic pineapple plantation (delicious), stopped at a farm where we watched how hearts of palm were harvested and then tasted them in homemade tortillas cooked over an open fire,Cambridge Select Women's Crystal Rhinestone Platform Wedge Ankle BootieWomen's Sandals Suede Pointed Flats Set Foot Beads Decorative Slippers Spring Summer drank coconut milk and visited with a very kind and gracious couple who opened their home to us.
