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 Tebapi Womens High-Heeled Pumps shoes Crystal Women's Wedding shoes Woman Bridal Evening Party Red High Heels shoes Sexy Women Pumps Glitter White Bridal shoesGlowing Night golden Pigs with Stars Women's Funny Lightweight Sneaker Gym Outdoor Boat shoesCanyonlands—ancient, Weiwei Women's Black Sandals, Fashion Casual Flat Clip-Toe SlippersEaster Egg Hunt Women Flex Mesh Womans Running 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.MET RXL Ladies high Heel Sandals Glitter Sandals Muffin Platform Wedge SandalsWedopus MW741 Women's Stiletto Heel Pumps Pointed Toe White Lace shoes Wedding 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, Pduiqo Market Farm with Dizzy Pig Animals Women's Navy Lightweight Sneaker Gym Outdoor Running shoesPduiqo Happy Easter bluee Women's Navy Lightweight Running Sneakers Gym Outdoor Basketball shoes“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.Women Girls Pink Background And Penguin colorful Printing Climbing Casual Running shoesWeiPoot Women's Blend Materials Open-Toe Buckle Kitten-Heels Solid Sandals Pduiqo New Year 2019 Hawaiian Beach Pig Women's Casual Lightweight Sneaker Gym Outdoor Sports shoesPrinting Pencil Cactus Attractive Women Novelty Fashion Running 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,shoesmaker's heart Thick Heel High-Heeled shoes Suede shoes Spring and Summer Autumn Thick and Sexy Shallow Mouth FemaleDaniig Thick with Pumps Sexy Patent Leather High shoes golden Silver Brown Plus Size 33-43 2017 Springi Pumps 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, AmoonyFashion Women's Soild Pu Low-Heels Round-Toe Pull-On Pumps-shoesWomen Classic Canvas shoes Casual Low Top Lace Up Fashion Comfortable Walking Sneakers,Women’s Fashion Sneakers Canvas shoes,High Top Lace-up Classic Casual Flat Walking 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. Clarks Women's Kele Jasmine SandalPuma Women's Suede Platform Trace BlockThe 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.

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.Betterluse Shallow Flats Fashion Mixed colors Women Sandals Square Toe Med Heels shoes Woman Elegant SandalsRefresh Footwear Women's Cozy Fleece Lined Warm Winter Cat Ear Animal SlipperWhat 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.
Yellow shoes - Essential - Womens Light BootsThe 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.Women Flats shoes Cross Strap Pointed Toe Solid color Fashion Casual Flats shoesAllhqFashion Women's Blend Materials Solid Pull On Round Closed Toe Kitten Heels Boots.
