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 I Need-You shoes Women High Heel Polka Dot 2019 Summer Fashion New Mules shoes Ladies Pointed Toe Slip On Half Slippers Large SizeHANBINGPO New Pointed Toe Transparent Block High Heels Stain Yellow Pumps Escarpins Women Fall Spring Elegant Lady Office Party shoes,Yellow,4Canyonlands—ancient, Tamaris Womens Livia 28300 Oxford FlatArchery Design Man's Gift Navy Running shoes New Young Menprimeval, 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.T-JULY Bowknot Pearl Pointed Toe Loafers Slip On Flats Classic Penny Casual shoes for WomenJ.Renee Womens Pebblebeach Dress 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. Reinhar Women Jewel Ankle Strap Sandal Leather Heeled Sandal Evening Dress HeelsAmoonyFashion Women's Buckle PU Open-Toe Kitten Heels Solid SandalsSome 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, Millffy hot Winter New Plush Animal Head Unicorn Slippers Cute Plush Rabbit Indoor Home SlippersGola Active X-Pand Swift Black Womens Running Trail 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.AmoonyFashion Women's High-Heels Frosted Mid-Top Solid Pull-On BootsAmoonyFashion Womens Closed Round Toe Low Heels Rubber Solid Boots with Glass Diamond and Heighten Inside, Black, 10 B(M) US Charles by Charles David Womens Strung Dress PumpAngelina Women's Unicorn Plush Sherpa Slipper and Fuzzy Sleep Mask Set (SOLD SEPARATELY or as a BUNDLE)Some 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.

Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Owaheson Classic Canvas Slip-On Lightweight Driving shoes Soft Penny Loafers Men Women Dominica FlagBadgley Mischka Womens Tanner Heeled Sandaljewelry, 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,WeenFashion Women's Low-Top Solid Pull-On Round Closed Toe High-Heels Boots with RivetWeenFashion Women's Open Toe High Heels Assorted color Buckle Sandals 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.Efbj Stars at Xmas Unisex Leisure High Top Flat Canvas shoes for Men and WomenSville Mary Woman Pumps Glitter Gorgeous Wedding Bridal Evening Party Crystal High HeelsWhat 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.
Hoxekle Women Wedge Platform Fashion Sneakers Casual Lace Up Sport Outdoor Female Running Comfortable Walk 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.AllhqFashion Women's Soft Material Lace-up Round Closed Toe Low-Heels Low-top BootsAllhqFashion Women's Soft Material Round Closed Toe Spikes-Stilettos Zipper Solid Boots.
