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 Nike Mens Lunartempo 2 - Footwear Men's Footwear Men's Walking shoesJeffrey Campbell Play hOMG Lace Platform shoes Womens Grey Trainers SneakersCanyonlands—ancient, Dr. Brinkmann Damen-Pantolette blue 701089-5McKaya Fringe Genuine Leather Shoulder Bag Brownprimeval, 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.Dulce Diva Suede Leather Pointed Toe Chunky Heel Slip On Handmade Over-The-Knee Boots for Women SexyNine Seven Genuine Leather Women's Pointed Toe Pumps - Handmade Gorgeous High Heel Dress shoes 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. Seychelles Womens Dual Purpose Wedge SandalOllio Womens shoes Cutout Scalloped Ankle Straps Chunky Heeled Platforms Sandals 1VINT05 (8.5 B(M) US, White)Some 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, GLOBALWIN Women's 1826 Brown Fashion Boots 8MT-JULY Knee-High Women Boots shoes Woman Buck Leather Square Heeled Boots Heel Round Toe Short Plush Boots“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.Capana Woven Rope Summer Sandals for Women Murphy LoopNine Seven Genuine Leather Women's Round Toe Super High Heel Zipper Handmade Platform Style Sexy High Heel Pump shoes Cambridge Select Women's Closed Round Toe Hiking 90s Grunge Lace-up Lug Sole Chunky Heel Ankle BootieLingGT Fluffy Women's Boots Cute Leather Fleece Lined shoes (color Beige, Size CA 9)Some 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,Rainbow Sandals High-Heeled shoes - Rainbow 2018 New, 11.3cm Stiletto Heel Sandals Women's Pointed Buckle with Fine Baotou Empty shoes (color White, Size 39)Nike Jordan Why Not Zer0.1 Low TB Black Black-Metallic Silver 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, MOZO Womens Forza Food Service shoesSpring Step Women's Lenna Sandals color Mauve 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. Bloch Women's Sienna Ballroom shoesFly London Women's WIGG672FLY Wedge 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,Sanita Clogs Women's Professional Element ClogWomen's high heels autumn and winter sexy thin section fashion trend 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.Women's high heels autumn fashion elegant thin section shoesCole Haan Womens 2.0 Studiogrand P&g Trainer Fashion SneakerWhat 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.
