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 AicciAizzi Fashion Zip Long Boots Knee HighWomen Flip Flop Toe Sandals-Shimmer Print Comfy Beach shoes,Brown,36Canyonlands—ancient, ISOTONER Women's Embroidered Pearl Satin Ballerina Slippers Ivory Small 5-6LIURUIJIA Women Sandals High Heels Square shoes Open Toe Back Strap Bowtie Peepprimeval, 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.Chaqlin Trendy Platform Creeper Sneakers Trendy Punk Black Skull Lacing shoes US6Fashion Heel Faux Suede Womens Round Toe High Heel Platform Handmade Black Over the Knee Boot 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, KemeKiss Women Fashion Summer Bootie ZipperRizaBina Women Chunky Heel Sandals Platform“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.Sunjinjing Women Slippers SummerRural Amgoldus Feelings Woven Straw Sandals Ladies Beach Slippers shoes womenDog Slippers - Novelty Plush Comfortable Animal Bulldog Slippers for Kids & Adults by Silver Lilly (Grey, Medium) Owen Moll Women Flip-Flop Sandals Elastic Soft Female Casual Summer Beach Flat shoesCITYCLASSIFIED City Classified Women's Block Open Toe Ankle Strap Heeled Sandals MGLT (8.5 B(M) US, MGLT)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.

Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Women Home Cotton Slippers Men Cute Rabbit Prints Indoor Soft Non Slip Couple Plush Warm shoes Bedroom FlatsAicciAizzi Women Ankle Strap Sandals shoes Stilettojewelry, 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,ZHOUZJ Summer White Women Sandals Woman Leather Casual Print Flat Platform Wedges Sandals LadiesJACKSHIBO Women Men Quick-Dry Water Skin shoes Aqua Socks for Water Sports Swim Surf Yoga Exercice Beach 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.VenusCelia Women's Floral Comfort Walking Flat LoaferRizaBina Women Heels Ankle Sandals 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.
Bernardo Womens New Moon Jelly Flip-FlopThe 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.Womens Casual Knee High Boots TAUPEZXCVB& Women Pumps Thick Heel Female shoes Pointed Toe High Heels Pleated colorful Ladies shoes 2018 Spring New Big Size 33-43 Apricot 10.5.
