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 Diesel Womens 355 Flip S-flip Low Buckle W SneakerSteve Madden Clair Women's BootCanyonlands—ancient, NJ Women Cute Bows Sandals Open Toe Strappy Stilettos High Heel Ankle Strap Dress shoes with ZipsNancy Jayjii Women Peep Toe Stiletto Cross Strip High Heel Pumps Patent Leather Nude 13 USprimeval, 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.Rockin Footwear Women's Rubber Aqua Neon Water shoesSuperga Womens 2790 Fglwembcocco Leather Trainers 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. FIC Peerage Olivia Women Extra Wide Width Comfort Loafer Brown 8.5Sugoishop Women's Booties Pointed Hollow Diamonds StilettosSome 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, Women's Diamante Elegant Bohemian Hollow Rhinestone Sandals Summer Beach Vacation Stylish Square Heel shoes Flip FlopsRound Head High Boots Women, Over The Knee Boots Scrub Buckle Side Zipper Thick with High Heel Long Boots Waterproof Platform Martin Boots Non-Slip Warm Knight 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.YDN Women Peep Toe High Heel Wedge Sandals Slip on Mules Platform Slide Walking shoesTogether to create a miracle 2018 winterleather Knee Thigh high Snow Boots Fur Long rain Boots,Picture color,43 Mgoldccan Babouche Fabric with Leather Sole Handmade shoes - Tangier Multi Stripe (Ships from Within USA)Kenneth Cole Womens Lacy Zone SandalsSome 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,Skechers Pouring Womens Rain BootsQupid Muse64 Stitched Leaf Design Cowboy Boots Stone standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land. To the Navajos who live here, this is a sacred land, MARIA CRISTINA Sandals Womens Suede BlackPUMA Men's Bog Sock Core Fashion Sneakerrich in the ancient traditions of their ancestors, carried on to this day.
Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Women's shoes - British Martin Boots Women's Booties Fashion High-Heeled Winter Warm Boots 36-43 XQYIfantasy Women's Leather Flat Knee High Riding Boots with Zipper and Buckle(Wide Calf Available)jewelry, 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. London Trash Crime - Cheetah SuedeVia Spiga Women's Brisa Slip OnThe 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.OH MY SANDALS women's shoes sandals 4237 BEIGEBokun Woman Flats Mules shoes Leather Lining Casual Summer Slides Large Size Sandals 34-43What 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.
Caprice Women's Ivy Low-Top SneakersThe 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.Italian shoesmakers Women's Bello Wedge SandalHoxekle Ankle Boots for Women Warm Winter Snow Boots Lace Up Fashion Square Heels Platform shoes.
