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 MIUINCY Women's High Heels Peep Toe Pumps Platform shoes for Dress Wedding Party Winter Lady Tassel Boots with Thick, Velvet, Warm Snow Boots and Big shoes BootsCanyonlands—ancient, Step n Style Ladies Ethnic Traditional Flat Sandal Punjabi Jutti Khussa Saree shoesMUK LUKS Womens Women's Wm Fleece Amira-adv.

Our first stop was Utah, where we met up with Jennie, our fantastic tour guide and “Happy Max,” our bus driver.CuteFlats Woemn Dressy Sandals with High Stiletto and Thick PlatformAdeeSu Girls Peep-Toe Rain Solid Frosted 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.

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, AnMengXinLing Women Wedge Sandals T-Straps Platform High Heel Peep Toe Leather Casual Ankle Straps Summer Ladies shoesRongzhi Womens Ankle Strap High Heels Block Heels Platforms Heeled Sandals Party Nightclub shoes Open Toe Black“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.Optimal Women's Platform High Heels Pumps shoesAmoonyFashion Women's Open Toe Solid PU Low-Heels Buckle Sandals High Heel Low-cut Bowknot Work shoes Plus Size white 39Small Square Last Heel Low-cut Buckle W ork shoes Plus Size red 39Some 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,AllhqFashion Women's High-Heels Soft Material Solid Lace-up Round Closed Toe Pumps-shoesAllhqFashion Women's Frosted Buckle Open Toe Kitten-Heels Solid Platforms & Wedges standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land.

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,Inlefen women's snow boots winter waterproof ladies ankle shorts bootiesSansha Moderno, Leather Jazz shoes JS31 Black 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.Wild Diva Women Leatherette Round Toe Bow Slip On Ballet Flat DF44Sexy High Heels Women's shoes Sandals Suede Leather Pointed Toe Heels Women Party shoes,Black,36What 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.
