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 Nine Seven Women's Suede Leather Classic Round Toe Low Chunky Heel Handmade Casual Back Zipper Comfortable Walking Dress Ankle BootiesNine Seven Patent Leather Women's Square Toe Mid Chunky Heel Handmade Pumps with Sparkling GlitterCanyonlands—ancient, T-JULY Retro Winter Women Snow Ankle Boots Cotton Plush Genuine Leather shoes Woman Stereo-Flower Med Heels Mid Calf BootPleaser Women's Infinity 909 Sandals,Red,6 Mprimeval, 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.Gentle Souls Womens Haddie Low Profile Fashion Sneaker Velvet Fashion SneakerGola Women's Quota II Liberty Sneaker Light Grey Multi 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. El Naturalista Women's N5340 Lux Suede Ocean Marine Loafer FlatVS Pink Victorias Secret Pink Faux-Fur Single Strap Slides Sandals Medium Black NWTSome 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, Women's Boots Casual Stretch Boots High Heel Socks Boots Autumn and WinterB.O.C. - Womens - pink“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.Longchanp Le Pliage Small Shoulder Tote Bag BlackTSIODFO Women Slip on Loafers Flat Platform Breathable Comfort Walking shoes Genuine Cow Leather Fashion Sneakers Youth Big Girls Spring Autumn Ladies Casual Oxford shoes Silver 7 (505-Silver-37) CJC High-Heeled Sandals Baotou High Heels Thin High Heels Stiletto Heels Elegant Sexy Fashion (color Black, Size EU35 UK3)Nine Seven Women's Patent Leather Pointed Toe Chunky Heel Handmade Glossy and Comfortable Spring Sandal shoesSome 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,Avec Moderation Womens St. Tropez Leather Pony Hair Slide Sandals1 STATE Women's Saffire Black Nappa M 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.Josef Seibel Women's Caren 06 Lace Up SneakerGoMax Women's Concorde Riding BootWhat 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.
Rocket Dog Women's SPOTLIGHT2 Striped Crochet Cotton Flip-FlopThe 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.ECCO Women's Touch Ballerina 2.0 Scale Ballet FlatYellow Box Women's Edessa Wedge Sandal.
