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 AN Womens Spikes Stilettos Pointed-Toe Rhinestones Imitated Suede Pumps shoes DGU00908Hoohle Sports Womens Surf Board Stripes Beach Pattern Flex Mesh Roshe 2 Lightweight Stylish Road Running shoesCanyonlands—ancient, AmoonyFashion Women's Buckle Imitated Suede Open-Toe High-Heels Solid SandalsWeenFashion Women's Solid High-Heels Closed Round Toe PU Pull-on Bootsprimeval, 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.Womens Fashion Comfort Platform Bride Dress Peep Toe Slip On Lace Sandal 3128-32August Jim Women's Flat shoes Hollow Out Pointed Toe Shallow Mouth Breathable Soft Sole shoes 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, Nanette Lepore Womens Alexandra Mule1TO9 Womens Chunky Heels Platform Peep Toes Black Urethane Pumps shoes - 4.5 B(M) US“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.1TO9 Womens Business Pumps-shoes Solid Urethane Pumps shoes MMS06606Hoohle Sports Womens Abstract Sloth Animal Flex Mesh Roshe 2 Lightweight Beautiful Running Sneakers shoes 1TO9 Womens Pointed-Toe Spikes Stilettos Buckle Apricot Urethane Pumps shoes - 5 B(M) USMonie Women's Comfort Wedding Dress Sandals for Bride Low Chunky HeelSome 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,Minitoo Womens MZ536 Kitten Heel Satin Wedding Evening Prom Party SandalsGuilty Heart - Womens Comfortable Lace Tie Over The Knee Thigh High Low Heel Boots standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land.

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.Cambridge Select Women's Moto Studded Strappy Buckle Lace-Up Combat BootCambridge Select Women's Closed Round Toe Crisscross Strappy Chunky Stacked Block Heel Ankle BootieWhat 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.
Spring Step Women's Estella Sandals color Black Multi Leather SandalsThe 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.KAOKAOO Increased Casual Single shoes Flat Waterproof Women's shoesWallhewb Women's Chunky Retro Boot Skinny Fashion Small Fellow Ankle Heels Comfortable for Women Platform Highten Increasing Joker Brown 8 M US Boot.
