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 Ladola Womens Solid Warm Comfort High-Heels Urethane BootsBOYATU Real Leather Handbag for Women Top Handle Bag Ladies Shoulder Purse BagCanyonlands—ancient, AllhqFashion Women's Buckle Open-Toe Kitten-Heels Frosted Solid Sandals, FBULD015043Gotta Flurt Disco II HI G High Top Sneakerprimeval, 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.Spice Art Women's Brown Suede Wool Large HandbagRomantico Men Loafers Handmade Italian Design Business Dress shoes Casual Flat Big Size 37-48 Charming Men Paillette Loafers 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, AdeeSu Womens Bucket-Style Travel Outdoor Urethane Boots SXE04573William Rast Womens Carly Pointed Toe Grommet Casual Boots“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.High Heels Sandals Women Stiletto Heel Classic Court shoes Pump Peep Toe Ladies Sexy shoes,EU38-41,Yellow,EU42High end Women's shoes 2019 European and American Fashion Fine Hair, High Heels Slippers.

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,LifeStride Women's Colby 2 Taupe Soft Canvas WSPLNWTFHCNWPCB Ladies Latin Dance shoes for Adults Soft Sole Comfortable Dancing shoes Non-Slip wear Dance shoes 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 Women's Student Roman shoes Ankle Strap Sandals High Heels ( color Brown , Size 35 )Zxcvb Women's Winter Short Boots Round Toe Suede Chunky Low Heel Faux Fur Warm Ankle Snow Booties Large Size 34-43jewelry, 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,Hoxekle Summer Autumn Breathable Mesh Sneakers Women Platform shoes Casual Sports Chunky Trainers Wedge SneakersCYBLING Women's Waterproof Winter Snow Boot Skull Design Fur Lined Cold Weather Mid Calf Boots 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.FANTURE Women's House Slippers Moccasins Slip On Micro Suede Faux Fur Lined Indoor & Outdoor-U418WMT009-black-38WeiPoot Women's Buckle Open-Toe High-Heels PU Solid Sandals, EGHLH006179What 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.
AmoonyFashion Women's Round Closed Toe Pull-On Pumps-shoes,BUTDT005774The 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.Sandals Girls shoes Sandals Summer Rivet Wedges Fashion Slope Sandals Thick Leather High Heels (color Black, Size 39)WeiPoot Women's Kitten-Heels Blend Materials Assorted color Sandals, EGHLH007612.
