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 Hoxekle Women Mid Calf Boots Buckle Lace Up Faux Fur Low Square Heel Antislip Sole Round Toe Winter Warm Long BootsWomen's shoes 2018 Autumn Breathable Hollow Tassels Ankle BootsCanyonlands—ancient, AmoonyFashion Women's Solid Pu Low-Heels Open-Toe Pull-On Sandals, BUTLS007277MEIZOKEN Women's Pointed Toe Slingback Sandals Low Mid Square Heel Ankle Strap Pumps Comfortable Dress 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.SENERY Women Winter Ankle Boots Fashion Sexy Lace Up Warm Fur Leopard Pointed Toe Party High Heel BootiesThemost Fashion Womens Rainbow Print Pointy Closed Toe Slip on Pencil High Heel shoes Pumps 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. Isotoner Zenz Women's Sport Mesh Elastic Slip-On Walking shoesWomen Mid Calf Snow Boot Low Heel Round Toe Buckle Winter Warm Female Boots Plush Fur Short 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, Women's shoes PU Summer Sandals，Comfortable Open Toe Stiletto Heel，Rome Ladies shoes ，for Party & EveningJosef Seibel Womens Fabienne 51 Nubuck 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.L-RUN Athletic Hiking Water shoes Mens Womens Barefoot Aqua Swim Walking shoesWANGXIAOLIN Tasseled Wild Toe Sandals Bohemian Sandals (color Black, Size 35) Women's Platform Sandals Open Toe Buckle Single Strap Velcro Flatform Chunky Heel Wedge shoesBtrada Women Fashion Summer Sandals Elegant Party Wedding shoes Sexy High Heel Ladies Platform 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. Stark red stone pillars of all shapes arose throughout the desert,Bussola Womens RIC Leather BootFemale Summer Pointed high Heels fine shoes Crystal Wedding shoes Bridesmaid Bride shoes Shopping shoes (color White, Size 38) 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, Bamboo Women's Montage 02N Fashion Riding Boots With BuckleGTVERNH Women's shoes Thick and Short Boots Autumn and Winter Velvet Martin Boots Female British Stylejewelry, 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.
We then began our downward trek from almost 8,000 feet, the Colorado Plateau,ASICS Women's Gel-Storm Running shoesToffeln Ultralite 0698 Nursing Clogs 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.AdeeSu Womens Bucket-Style Fashion Urethane Boots SXE04422AdeeSu Womens Nubuck Kitten-Heels Solid Urethane Boots SXE04424What 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.
Converse DC Comics Chuck Taylor All Star SneakersThe 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. Clarks Funny Dream - Navy Interest (Textile) Womens shoesAllhqFashion Women's Round Closed Toe Cow Leather Solid Pumps with Hollow Out and Metal OrnamentWe visited an organic pineapple plantation (delicious), stopped at a farm where we watched how hearts of palm were harvested and then tasted them in homemade tortillas cooked over an open fire,Women Sandal Party Elegant Heeled Sandals Thin High Heel Black Platform Patent Leather shoesAerosoles Womens Monorail Ankle Boot drank coconut milk and visited with a very kind and gracious couple who opened their home to us.
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.Spring Step Women's Tulisa shoes color Red Leather shoesLadies high Heeled Sandals, Rough Sandals, Summer Ladies high Heels..
