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 Nine West Women's Vered SandalOlivia Jaymes Women's Casual Sandal Round Open Toe Crisscross Strappy Platform Block Chunky Heel SandalsCanyonlands—ancient, Carlos Foushee Women Pointed Toe Heels Crystal Bling Fashion Silver shoes High Heels Pumps 12cm See Through Party Wedding shoesHaflinger Womens Gz Gala Flatprimeval, 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.Women's Fish Mouth Stiletto Sandals Rear Buckle Sandals Beige Elegant and Geblackus(Heel Height 6-8cm)Rieker Regina 50 Women's 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. Salming Women's enRoute shoes BlackAll Black Women's Layered 2 Motorcycle BootSome 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 Mid-Calf Boots Thick Plush Side Zipper Women Warm Snow Boots Fashion Lace Up Crystal BootLAICIGO Womens Loafers and Slip Ons Tassel Flat Ankle Booties Low Heel Faux Suede Pointed Toe 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.ILSE JACOBSEN Women's Apatite 200 Fashion SneakerTeva Women's W Azure Flip Sandal Side Zip Chelsea Ankle Boots Flat Booties Outdoor Non-Slip Women's Casual shoes Round HeadNine Seven Women's Genuine Leather Pointed Toe Chunky Heel Mule Handmade Glossy and Comfortable Spring Summer Sandal 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,Women's Booties, Fall Winter New Round Head Thick Heel Leather Martin Boots Ladies Knit Boot Flat Fashion Boots (color Black, Size 34)MNX15 Women's Elevator shoes Height Increase Taller 3.1 Monaco Black Sneakers 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, Linmatealliance Outdoor&Sports Outdoor&Sports shoes Knit Upper Breathable Sport Sock Boots Chunky Sneakers High Top Running shoes for Men Women, shoes Size 42(Black)Adidas - Stan Smith - color White - Size 11.5USjewelry, 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,Ace 16.4TF Junior Astro Turf TrainersMen's Bullock shoes Formal Oxford Leather Business Dress shoes Round Head Crocodile Pattern for Lining Lace ups shoes Vintage Casual for Fashion Office 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 West Womens Noah Leather Dress SandalWomen's shoes Leatherette PU New Spring Summer Stiletto Heel Crystal Flower for Party & Evening Dress Black BeigeWhat 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.

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.Adidas Men's Pace Plus Ankle-High Fashion SneakerHiking Walking shoes Mens Lightweight Trekking Leather shoes Lace-up Low Rise Footwear Durable All Season Sports Boots for Camping Trainers.
