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 T-JULY Fashion Women Over The Knee Boots Patent Leather High Heels Large Ladies Party shoesGLOBALWIN Women's 18YY21 Grey Fashion Boots 9MCanyonlands—ancient, Fly London Womens Mexu914fly Flat SandalSol Sana Womens Blair Mule Ii Muleprimeval, 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.Zoot Women's Diego Running shoesSpring Step Womens Calla Wedge Slide 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. Skechers Women's Reggae Fest Epic Adventure Walking shoesGiani Bernini GB35 Jenett Block Heel Ankle Strap Sandals, JeanSome 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.
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.K-Swiss Men's X Lite ST CMF TrainerPointed Toe Lace-ups Business Formal Dress shoes for Mens Handmade Genuine Leather Oxford shoes Work Utility Footwear Gentle Souls Womens Noa-Beth Closed Toe Wedge Espadrille Wedge SandalWomen's high heels spring and autumn sandals tide 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,Nine Seven Genuine Leather Women's Square Toe Flat Chunky Heel Cute Handmade Slip On Elastic Women Pumps with Lace DecorsBugatti city denim Damen-Schnürer blue (5) 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, A7244 Avenger Men's Composite Toe EH Waterproof Hiker Boots 15Bikkembergs Fend-er2084sneakers New Mens 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.

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,Mavic Cosmic Elite Cycling shoes - Mens Black White Firey Red, US 6.5 UK 6.0Adidas 76ers Men's NBA Superstar 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.Nine Seven Patent Leather Women's Square Toe Block Heel Pearls Dressy Handmade Sexy Ankle BootiesNike Women's Air Max Thea PRM Running shoesWhat 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.
Free Bird Womens Juno Flat SandalThe 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.Tough Duck McDermot 8 Steel Toe Work Boot BrownMen's British style Sports shoes Non-slip High help Booties Outdoor Walking Jogging Fitness shoes,black,44.
