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 Black Captain Men's Pirate Boot CoversWomen's Hiking shoes, Couple Outdoor Walking shoes Mesh Hiking shoes Large Size Breathable Mesh shoes Fishing shoesCanyonlands—ancient, Itasca blueff Creek Men's Striker Leather Trail Hiking shoes, 10 D US, Olive, Rubber OutsoleKenneth Cole REACTION Men's SMH5LE021primeval, 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.Men's Boots Outdoor High-Top Military Boots Camping Boots Waterproof Non Slip Hiking Boots Black Khaki,A,41Adidas Women's Cf Lite Racer Cc W 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 - SB Zoom Stefan Janoski - 333824067Demonia Mens STACK-201 RBOWHGVL BootsSome 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, Beach shoes Slippers Men's shoes Men's Half Pack Sandals (color Khaki, Size 41)Cafeblack - Derby Coda DI Rondine“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.Cole Haan Womens Studiogrand Slip-on Waterproof Boot Cold Weather & ShearlingBates 85501 Mens USMC GORE-TEX Waterproof Boot 6 2E US Lumberjack shoes Man shoes Roman SM33503-002 Q72 CE001 BlackBates Men's Recondo 7-inch Boot Coyote 7 MSome 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.

Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Khombu Mens Chester Insulated Suede Chukka BootsNike Men's Blazer MID '09 ND Basketball 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.

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,Men's Sandals and Slippers Summer Breathable Non-Slip Beach shoes Outdoor Slippers- Core Plus Women's History Victorian Leather Boot's Black 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.XYD Women Pointed Toe Mid Kitten Heel Slingback Sandal Pumps Slip On Patent Satin Dress shoesJack Wolfskin Men's Seven Wonders Packer Low Men's Lightweight Casual Sneakers shoesWhat 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.
Splendid Womens Cupid Ankle BootThe 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. shoes Mens Casual shoes Outdoor Hiking shoes Comfort Climbing Lace-up shoesNike Pg 2 Mens Aj2039-300We visited an organic pineapple plantation (delicious), stopped at a farm where we watched how hearts of palm were harvested and then tasted them in homemade tortillas cooked over an open fire,Sam Edelman Women's Odila Fashion SandalsInternational Wholesale Gifts 017-1430 The Only Stock I Buy drank coconut milk and visited with a very kind and gracious couple who opened their home to us.
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 Running shoes Duramo 8 Cloudfoam Training Work Out CP8746Athletic Sneaker for Men Sports shoes Casual Simple Lace Up Mesh Fabric Hook&Look Strap (color Apricot, Size 9.5 D(M) US).
