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 ODEMA Women's Short Ankle Rubber Wedge Rain BootsWallhewb Solid High Heel Boots for Women Over The Knee Boots Heels Platform Boots Female shoes Winter Warm Boots Fashion Elegant Girl Sexy Leg Length Reasing bluee 5 M US High-Heeled shoesCanyonlands—ancient, Plus Velours Martin Boots Female Short Boots Outdoor Hiking Boots Single Boots Female Flat Large Size Autumn and Winter Female PU Leather Boots PinkFAY WATERS Women's Thickened Fur Half Snow Booties Round Toe Slouch Wedge Mid-Calf Bootprimeval, 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.T-JULY Women Sneaker Female Non-Slip Heightening Platform shoes Side Zipper Sports shoes Ladies Lace up Casual shoes in WhiteT-JULY Women Height Increasing Canvas Wedges Platform Heels Sneakers Female Nice Casual 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, Twinkle UU Leather shoesvLadies Summer Slippers shoes Women High Heels Sandals Fashion Summer shoes A571Women's Zip up Cutout Chunky High Heels Ankle Booties Fisherman Sandals,Black,7MUS“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.Summer Women Genuine Leather shoes Fashion Platform Slip On Wedges Plus Size Footwear bluee 10 M USBalaMasa Womens Slides-Sandals Quilted Fringe Urethane Slides Sandals ASL05604 Men's Peas shoes of The Tide shoes Lazy Suede shoesBalaMasa Womens Chunky Heels Platform Zipper Imitated Leather 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,BalaMasa Womens Fringed Casual Outdoor Urethane Boots ABL11435High end Designs Classic High Top Women Platform shoes Fashion Flower Printed Casual Women's Sneakers Flats Canvas 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, Dailyshoes Women's Fashion Buckle Flat Casual Adjustable Strap Sandal shoesJJF shoes Myra Black Sparkle Crystal Gem Rhinestone Glitter Mesh Formal Evening Dress Pumps-6jewelry, 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. Lacoste Womens Carnaby Strap SneakerT-JULY Sandal for Women Open Toe with Buckle Elegant Thick Heels Ladies High Heel Black Wine Red Fashion Sexy shoesThe 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.Rieker Women's L0560 Low-Top SneakersWomen's Sneakers, Winter Wild Outdoor Sports shoes Plus Velvet Warm shoes Rubber Non-Slip Soles Ladies Fitness Running shoes Athletic Sneakers,Pink,40What 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.
Skechers Womens Breathe Easy Symphony Fashion SneakerThe 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.
