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 High-top Pull-on Frosted Low-Heels Round Closed Toe BootsAmoonyFashion Women's Round Closed Toe Low Top High Heels Solid Imitated Suede BootsCanyonlands—ancient, Hole Denim High Heels Over The Knee Boots Spring Summer Peep Toe Thigh High BootsJ.

Our first stop was Utah, where we met up with Jennie, our fantastic tour guide and “Happy Max,” our bus driver.HUANGDAISY shoes Statue of Liberty Slip-on Canvas Loafer for WomenAN Womens Chunky Heels Platform Imitated Suede Boots DKU02509 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. AdeeSu Womens Lace Wool Boots SXC03443Women's Summer Rhinestone Beautiful Fashion Personality Slipper Wedge Heel Beach Flip FlopsSome 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 Open Toe Low Heels Zipper Solid Sandals with Metal OrnamentWeenFashion Women's PU High-Heels Round-Toe Boots with Slipping Sole and Thread“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.Womens Tropical Leaves Broadleaf colord Flowers Flex Mesh Roshe 2 Lightweight Fashion Cross-Trainer shoes2 Lips Too Womens Too Liam Over The Knee Boot Summer European and American Suede Strappy Strappy Sandals,Yellow,38AmoonyFashion Women's High Heels Patent Leather Solid Buckle Open Toe SandalsSome 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,AmoonyFashion Womens Round Closed Toe Low Heels PU Frosted Short Plush Solid Boots with Tassels, Purple, 7.5 B(M) USSummer-lavender Spring Platform shoes Women Square Heels Pumps Women shoes Platform Black Rubber Sole School 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, FLourishing LHigh Heels Strappy Stiletto Summer Lace Up Sandals Party Weeding Office Club Ladies shoesSpring Step Women's Estella Sandals color White Leather Sandalsjewelry, 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. WeenFashion Women's Frosted Round Closed Toe Solid Low-top High-Heels BootsWeenFashion Women's Blend Materials Low-top Assorted colors Zipper High-Heels BootsThe 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,Elsa Wilcox Women Walking shoes Comfort Casual Slip on Dress Pump shoes Classic Pionted Toe Low WedgeFINDYOU Women's Sandals Bohemian Summer Beach shoes Sandal Gladiator Retro Rome Flat Heels shoes Outdoor Casual 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.WeenFashion Women's Spikes Stilettos Frosted High Top Solid Pull On BootsWeenFashion Women's PU Low top Solid Pull-on Kitten-Heels BootsWhat 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.
Ipdterty Wear-Resistant Sports Sneaker Boston Terrier Cute Dog Womens New Running 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.F-OXMY Women Fashion Soft Flat Oxfords shoes Retro Comfort Round Toe Lace Up Casual Walking shoesOwen Moll Women Pumps, Casual Slip-On Pointed Toe Stilettos High Heels Career shoes.
