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 CularAcci Women Fashion Thin Heel Sandals Ankle StrapWirksep Colourful Owls bluee Background Womens Cozy Lightweight Running shoes Sneakers Soft RubberCanyonlands—ancient, Women's Cute Avocados Green Slip on Beach Sandals and Anti-Slip Shower Slipper Comfort SandalsBeautiful Women Crab Design Pattern Slip on Beach Sandals and Anti-Slip Shower Slipper Comfort Sandalsprimeval, 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.Aerosoles Womens Buckle Down Dress SandalPlatform Women Sandal Wedges shoes Leopard Casual Woman Peep Toe Platform 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. Aldo Women's JULIETT Heeled SandalSuper explosion Womens Mules Pointed Toe Slip-on Dress Slides Backless Flats SlippersSome 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, GAO-GEN1 Sandals Women's Sandals Summer Fish Mouth with Crystal and High HeelsKemeKiss Women Pointed Toe Heels Ankle Boots Knit“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.Breckelles GAIL-22 Women's Belted Chunky Stacked Heel Ankle BootiesMobnau Women's Retro Leather Fashion Skidproof Sandles Slide Sandals CarziCuzin Women Closed Toe Mules shoes HeelsFizaiZifai Women Fashion High Heel Sandals PlatformSome 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,Fergalicious Womens Integrity Ankle BootWomen Slippers Indoor shoes Flat Fur Winter Cartoon Lipstick Home Slippers 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, Minishion Women's Soft Rubber Sole Peep Toe Synthetic Salsa Latin Dancing shoes Party SandalsBeautiful - Fashion Women's Classic Wingtip Lace-up Oxfords shoes Vintage Platform Low Heel Brogues Dress Oxford Brownjewelry, 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. Kaizi Karzi Women Fashion Block Heel Pump Slip OnKemeKiss Women Mid Wedge Heels shoesThe 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,Micca Bacain New Summer Platform Heels Sandals Women Open Toe Thick High Heels shoes Soft Leather Comfort Sandals WomenDora Girls Neon Lime Green 1.75 Go Go Boots size Large 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.Jamron Womens Fashion 8CM High Wedge Heel Lace Up Sneakers Suede Sequins Canvas shoes Elevator SneakersTipi Toe Women's 10 Pairs colorful Patterned Low Cut No Show SocksWhat 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.
AicciAizzi Women Kitten Heel PumpsThe 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.
