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 Black Imsu Cambridge Select Women's Classic Thigh-High Over The Knee Riding BootDark Brown Leather Clarks Men's Vanek Step LoafersCanyonlands—ancient, Brown Napa Driver Club USA Mens Mens Genuine Leather Made in Brazil Park Ave Buckle Loafer LoaferBlack Plaid DUNION Women's BRINE Comfortable Slip on Chain Decorated Penny Loafers Low Heels Almond Toe Casual Daily 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.Black, metallic copper-black Nike Mens Air Foamposite One White Foam Synthetic Basketball shoes1872 Purple HKR Women Slip On Leather Loafers Comfortable Flats for Work Non Slip Driving shoes Fashion Sneakers 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. Saddle Leather Sam Edelman Womens Rishel Loafer FlatBrown Womens Vintage Autumn Winter Round Toe Lac- Up Square Low Heel Military Riding Combat Martin Mid Calf BootsSome 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, Black Clear Betsey Johnson bluee Women's SB-Jozie Over The Knee Boot, Black ClearBlack Leather Cole Haan Womens Laree Pump Pump“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.Red T-JULY Fashion Women Over The Knee Boots Patent Leather High Heels Large Ladies Party shoesWine Miz Mooz Women's Bennett Fashion Boots Red Jv V.J Women's Casual Driving Moccasins Penny Loafers Fashion Suede Leather Dress shoes Flats VJ6088Black Houndstooth G4U Women's Rain Boots Multiple Styles color Mid Calf Wellies Buckle Fashion Rubber Knee High Snow 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.

Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Wolf Grey White Nike - Air Force OneRed Woman Slip On Pumps Satin High Heels 12cm Party shoesjewelry, 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. golden Honey Ironstone Cole Haan Men's Original Grand Plain ToePrecious01 Vince Camuto Womens Ezzina Flat SandalThe 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,Black Women's Over The Knee High Heels Boots Stiletto Heel Pointed Toe Knee High Boots Ladies Platform BootsWhite Summer High Heels Sandals Leather Lace Sandals Female Slope & Thick Waterproof Platforms High-Heeled Fish Head shoes (11cm High) (color Black, Size 38) 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.Navy Green Swims Braided Lace LoaferMetal gold Vince Camuto Women's LEERA WedgesWhat 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.
Navy GATUXUS Women's Pointed Strap Low Heel Comfort Dress Pumps Mary Jane 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.Black Obsidian Navy bluee Nike Air Max 95 No-Sew Men's shoes GreyDark Taupe Donald J Pliner Womens Gema-dp Pump.
