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 AmoonyFashion Women's Buckle High-Heels Pu Solid Open-Toe Sandals, BUTLT006545AmoonyFashion Women's Open-Toe Pu Kitten-Heels Buckle Solid SandalsCanyonlands—ancient, Quality.A Women's rain Boots Waterproof Garden shoes Rubber shoes Water shoesNine West Women's Jazzy Sandalprimeval, 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.Patent Leather Glossy Sandals Ladies Summer Shallow Mouth High Heels (color 1, Size EU36 UK4 CN36)Beautiful - Fashion Women's Wedge Paltform Sneakers Breathable Non Slip Lace up Athletic Casual Walking 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. Efbj Star Unisex Comfortable High Top Flat Canvas shoes for Men and WomenTianrui Crown Women and Ladies The gold Magnolia Embroidery Boots Inner Height Wedge Boot shoesSome 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, AmoonyFashion Women's Kitten-Heels Round-Toe Soild Lace-up Pumps-shoesAmoonyFashion Women's Pointed-Toe PU Kitten-Heels Pull-on Studded Pumps-shoes“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.MAYPIE Womens Topale Synthetic Slip-on Mid Calf BootsLaptop Bag 14.6 Inch Lightweight Business Briefcase Water Resistant Office College Messenger Bag Nylon Shoulder Bag with Adjustable & Detachable Strap Fits Notebook Computer for Men Women, Black AmoonyFashion Women's Buckle PU Split-Toe Low-Heels Solid SandalsAmoonyFashion Women's Patent Leather Pointed Closed Toe Kitten Heels Lace Up Solid Pumps 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. Stark red stone pillars of all shapes arose throughout the desert,WANG XIN Sandals Men's Summer New Casual Non-Slip Youth Trend Slippers Men's Beach shoes BlackAmoonyFashion Women's Round Closed Toe High Heels Solid Lace Up Pumps-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, 1TO9 Womens Chunky Heels Low-Cut Uppers Square-Toe Leather Pumps shoes MMS044121TO9 Womens Bucket-Style Solid Casual Urethane Boots MNS02970jewelry, basketry, rugs, and weaving representing the Navajo, Hopi, and Zuni cultures.

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,Nine West Womens Winflower Heel SandalNew Balance Women's Casual Comfort 824 Training Cross-Trainer 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.Quicksilk Women Quick Drying Mesh Slip On Water shoesWomen's Soft Memory Foam Cotton House Slippers Open Toe Slip On Home Slippers Cute Indoor Outdoor Home shoes (color Light Purple, Size 7US)What 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.Pirate Theme Skull Anchor Slip On Rubber Sole Sneakers Canvas shoes for Women CasualSkulls & Crossbones-01 Slip On Superior Comfort Sneakers Canvas shoes for Women Casual.
