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 Minitoo MZLL036 Women's Stiletto Flowers Handmade Satin Wedding Party Evening Prom Pumps shoesOwaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens color Paint Hedgehog Playing with ButterflyCanyonlands—ancient, Sam Carle Womens Pumps，Slip-on Comfortable 10cm Heel Pointed Toe Spring Work Dress shoesAIYOUMEI Women's Suede Wedge Ankle Strap High Heels Platform Pumps 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.Zarbrina Womens Chunky Heel Platform Ankle Boots Sexy Pointed Toe Flock Short Plush Zipper Up Winter Warm Party Dress shoesPleaser Women's Adore-702UV C NPP Sandal 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, Owaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Nebraska FlagFlock High Heels Gladiator Grid Sandals 2019 Summer Female Super High Heels Zipper Sandals Open Toe Pumps“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.Qupid CF58 Women Metallic Lizard Leatherette Open Toe Ankle Strap Stiletto Sandal - ChampagneT-JULY 2018 Tassels Oxford shoes for Women Slip on Mid Heel Loafers Casual Oxfords Thick Flat Dress shoes Wallhewb Women's Dressy Ankle Strap Sandals - Peep Toe Pendant Strappy - Buckle Platform Chunky High Heels shoes Leather Comfortable Sweet Breathable Dexterous White 8 M US Strap SandalsOwaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Fierce Red Eye Shark Bloody MouthSome 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,Owaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Sardinia FlagOwaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Asexual Pride Flag 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, Summer shoes Woman 33-44 Buckle Elegant Prom Wedding shoes Thick Heel Sandals WomenLadies Genuine Slipper Mule Slippers Soft Wool Lining House shoes Outdoor Slip On Mega Fluffy Mules Sliders Slippers Sandals,Black,36EUjewelry, 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,Steve Madden Women's Breeze Low-Top SneakersWeiPoot Womens Closed Round Toe High Heels PU Imitated Suede Solid Boots with Bowknot 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.Owaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Moldova FlagOwaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Norway Flag National EmblemWhat a fun, friendly, traveling group.

A Letter to Compass Travel Agent Wendy: Aerosoles Womens Summer Sol Boat shoesGedigits Female Spring Wedges White shoes Women Platform Casual Sneakers Pink 5 M US
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.
Devious Women's Femme 12 Platform 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.Hoohle Sports Womens Musical Instruments with Best Black Guitar Flex Mesh Roshe 2 Lightweight Coll Road Running shoesBhujfufgv Thick-Soled Sports shoes Increase The Students ' Low-Help shoes Inside Summer Breathable shoes.
