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 Minishion Women's Almond Toe Lace Flower Satin D-Orsay Party Wedding Evening FlatsDesigner Canvas Slip On Loafers shoes for Women Fashion Classic Walking Low Top Sneaker shoesCanyonlands—ancient, AllhqFashion Women's Closed Pointed Toe Low-Top High-Heels Solid PU BootsZalezing Comfortable Women's Lace Up Round Closed Toe Kitten Heels Mid Top 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.Unyielding1 Women's Boots Ethnic Style Flowers Thick with Women's shoes Ankle BootsWomen Fashion Lightweight shoes Sneakers Teepee Bear Forest Breathable Running Lace-Up 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. FEWW11 Women Funny Lightweight shoes Sneakers Polar Bear Papa Bear Canvas Upper Sport Lace-UpFORTUN Elegant Women's shoes Warm Casual shoes Sneakers Winter shoesSome 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, Pleaser Womens AMU20 BPU Dress PumpMy Little Nest Women's Top Handle Satchel Handbag Abstract Marble Motif Background Ladies PU Leather Shoulder Bag Crossbody Bag“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 Round Closed Toe Kitten-Heels Low Top Solid BootsDrew Toby Women Pumps Pointed Shallow Mouth Ankle Strap Sexy Fashion Elegant High Heels FUN.S Girls Boys Warm Winter Flat shoes Snow Boots Warm Boots (Toddler Little Kid)ALLAK Women's Suede Flat Platform Sneaker shoes Fashion Winter Lace Up Cotton Snow BootsSome 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,Cambridge Select Women's Low Top Closed Round Toe Quilted Stretch Slip-On Fashion SneakerVionic with Orthaheel shoes Care Kit Unisex shoes Care 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, AdeeSu Womens Chunky Heels Metal Buckles Imitated Suede Boots SXC03204AdeeSu Womens Chunky Heels Pointed-Toe Imitated Suede Boots SXC03075jewelry, 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.

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.MUK LUKS Womens Women's Jandon Boots Fashion BootDelicious Feast Women Gift Climbing Casual Running shoes Printing MensWhat 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.Wuixkas bluee Dog Foot Bones Womens Lightweight Mesh Sneakers Climbing Boat shoesWuixkas Red Lips Sign Womens Canvas Upper Sneakers Lace up Cute Rubber Sole Loafer Canvas shoes.
