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 AdeeSu Womens Bows Solid Fashion Travel Urethane Pumps shoes SDC05967LIAOYLY Women's flip-Flops Toe Slippers Fox Fur Soft Slippers Flat Sandals MulticolorCanyonlands—ancient, FL By KSC Womens Ankle Boots Buckle Accent Studs Lace Up Combat BootsFrestree Personalized High Top Sneakers for Women Basketball 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.Skechers Womens Go Walk Evolution Ultra - 15742 SneakerWeiPoot Women's Kitten-Heels Soft Material Solid Buckle Peep Toe Sandals 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. Step n Style Women Khussa shoes Punjabi Jutti Mojari Maharani Look Flat Ballet shoes blueeInc Womens Kalea Satin Evening D'Orsay HeelsSome 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, Comfortable Anti-Slip Flip Flops, Women Summer Simple Flat Heel Pure color Sandals for Beach Pool Party VacationsWomen's Winter Sports shoes, Stylish and Comfortable Warm Plush Flat 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.Artfaerie Womens Transparent Stiletto High Heels Leopard Pumps Pointed Toe Clear Sexy Slip on Court shoesAN Womens Heighten Inside Tassels Urethane Boots DKU02068 ALBERTO LA TORRE Flats-shoes Womens Snakeskin BlackEMANUELLE VEE Flats-shoes Womens Suede GreySome 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,Keds Womens Champion Floral Jacquard SneakersXiaoyang Women's Running shoes Lightweight Breathable Casual Gym shoes Fashion Sneakers 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, Crocs Womens Capri Metallictext Wedge Flip Flip-FlopGTVERNH-Women's shoes Fashion in Spring and Summer Cool Slippers Fashionable and Wild are Suitable for Big Feet Thick Feet and High Wear.jewelry, 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.

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,Baiscar Raiberm Black Nude Thick Heel Round Toe Slingback Pumps Dress shoes for Women Sexy CasualT-JULY Summer Breathable Women Loafers Woven shoes Handmade Elastic Woven Flat Slip on Shiny Green Nylon 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.Bogs Kids Spring Flowers Rain BootThe Increase in Autumn and Winter Boots Suede Short Boots Boots SizeWhat 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.
AllhqFashion Women's PU Lace-up Round-Toe Low-Heels Solid Pumps-shoesThe 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.Pleaser Womens Kiss201mg B M Platform Dress SandalHANBINGPO 2019 New PVC Jelly Sandals Crystal Open Toed Sexy Thin Heels Crystal Women Transparent Heel Sandals Slippers Pumps,Apricot,5.
