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 Cambridge Select Women's Low Top 90s Perforated Glitter Lace-Up Chunky Platform Flatform Fashion SneakerLadies Booties, Fall Winter Heel Thick Heel Flanging Suede Chelsea Boots Women's Round Head Keep Warm Wear Resistant Fashion Boots (color B, Size 37)Canyonlands—ancient, Ankle Boots Flock Zip Footwear Tassel Thick Plush Female Booties Round Toe shoes Woman Winter NewZ.SUO Men Women Unisex Couple Hiking Boots Trekking Boots Trails shoes for Outdoor Travel Walking Campingprimeval, 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.AdeeSu Womens Nubuck Studded Boots Urethane Boots SXE04544MET RXL Leisure mom shoes Round Flat shoes Retro Non-Slip Soft-Soled shoes in The Fall 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.

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, Sparrow Silver Rhinestone Bridal Wedding Dress shoes Ankle Straps Round Toe Bride shoes Platform shoes Party PumpsWomen Pump Ankle Straps High Heels Wedding Dress shoes 12cm Stiletto Rhinestone Floral OL Court shoes EU Size 34-39“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.WeiPoot Women's Soft Material Solid High-Heels Buckle Open-Toe SandalsWeiPoot Women's PU Kitten-Heels Peep Toe Solid Buckle Sandals Ellie shoes Women's 678 Jesse Platform SandalWeenFashion Women's Round Closed Toe Low-Heels Pu Solid Buckle Pumps-shoes,AMGDX007133Some 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,WeenFashion Women's Low-Heels Buckle Assorted color SandalsWeenFashion Women's Buckle Frosted Round-Toe Low-Heels Solid Sandals 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, Women's Boots High Heel Bow Ankle Boots with Chunky Heel Fall & Winter Warm BootsKYOETSU Women's Urethane Zori Formal Sandals for Kimono and Yukata Cute Embroidered Strapjewelry, 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.

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.STEVEN by Steve Madden Women's Earla BootNew Balance Women's W690V4 Running shoesWhat 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 Kitten-Heels Buckle Solid SandalsThe 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.WeenFashion Women's Assorted color Fabric Low-Heels Pointed-Toe Pull-On Sandals, AMGLX010033Kiara shoes Camouflage Clogs Made in Heel 13 - K9301 Camouflage.
