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 INC International Concepts Womens ZITAH Leather Pointed Toe, Tangerine, Size 5.5Merrell Moab 2 Ventilator MidCanyonlands—ancient, ERMAN'S shoes Woman Sabot Popped WN02 BlackReebok Instapump Fury Og Blk Scl Mens Running Trainersprimeval, 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.New Balance Women's WX20v4 Cross-Training and Weightlifting Minimus shoesWomen's Sandals,Satin Bride Wedding shoes Bridesmaid shoes Fine High-Heeled Large Size Dress shoes Cocktail Party Performance shoes,g,37 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. Nike Women’s WMNS Ebernon Low Basketball shoes BeigCreative Recreation Deross Sneakers in NavySome 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, Merrell shoes Moab 2 LTR Mid Gore-Tex J18419 Beluga UK 11.5Adidas - at Speedcut TR W - Q23551“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.Donald J Pliner Womens Kona Open Toe Casual Slide SandalsComfortabel Damen-Schnürer - G pink (42) Nike Men's Air Max Sequent 2 Running shoes blueeshoes Men Handmade Original Spring Men's shoes Men's Wedding shoes England Retro Groom Oxford shoes Business Dress shoes Men's Classic Formal Oxford Dress shoes (color Black, Size 6.5-US)Some 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,OTBT Women's New Moon Wedge SandalsECCO shoes Men's ECCO CS16 Sneakers, Amber, 41 EU 7.5-8 M US 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, SPLNWTFHCNWPCB Lady Modern Dance shoes Ballroom Dance Diamond shoesASICS Gel-Lyte III Mens Running Trainers H41Nq Sneakers shoesjewelry, 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. New Balance Women's 896v1 Lightweight Tennis shoesMen's shoes Men's Business Dress shoes Leather Genuine Pointed Leather shoes England Tie Low to Help shoes Men (color Black, Size 40)The 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.
We then began our downward trek from almost 8,000 feet, the Colorado Plateau,La Sportiva Akyra Trail Running shoes - SS19Mona flying Womens Leather Perforated Brogue Wingtip Derby Saddle Oxfords shoes for Womens ladis Girls Brown-Green 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.Acton G2S Work Boot (CSA), BlackASICS Men's GT-1000 7 G-TX, Black Race blueeWhat 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.
Ted Baker Mens Black Martt 2 Leather shoesThe 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.TABITHA SIMMONS Womens Klara Suede Open Toe BootiesRed Marwar Luxurious Women's Leather Bag Work Tote Large Handbags Shoulder Bag.
