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 Finesse Genuine Cow Split Suede Leather Fringe Shoulder Bag with Handmade Beading 7885Inc Womens Gannie Cow Hair Embroidered Slides Tan 5.5 Medium (B,M)Canyonlands—ancient, August Jim Women Winter Flats shoes,Slip on Winter Furry Moccasins LoafersDamara Women Beautiful Flower Embroidery Flap Trifold PU Wallet,Watermelonprimeval, 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.Sugar Womens Women's Raffle Printed Rain Boot Rain BootExcellent.c Classic Flat shoes Women's Casual shoes Loafers Comfortable 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. Womens Middle Wedge Heel Summer shoes Flip Sandals Crystal Diamond BeadBridal Wedding Thin shoes peach 39Some 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, TAOFFEN Women Fashion Stiletto Heel Half Boots Pull On shoesMountain Warehouse Field Vibram Womens Boots - Ladies Summer shoes“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.Kaloosh Women's Buckle Strap Inside Zip up Round Toe Booties Mid Block Heel Ankle Boots with ZipperIINFINE Women's shoes Decorative Flower Slip On Comfort Light Ballet Flats Show Story Sexy Metal Ball Strappy Slingback Wooden Look Wedges Platform Clogs Sandals,LF30832DolphinGirl Women Fashion Sneaker Cute to The Core Comfy Loafers Cute Plaid Printed shoes SH-CY00459Some 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,Dolphin Women's Extreme High Fashion Silver Stiletto Slim High Heel Pumps SM00034Marc Fisher Women's Brandi Black Leather Strappy Sandals 7 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, A-LING Women's Martin Casual Boots Low-Heeled Pointed Straps shoescolorful-space 2019 Women Flat Retro Boho Bohemia Sandals shoes Woman Casual Peep Toe Ethnic Crystal String Bead Weave Sandals 35-42jewelry, 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. Skechers Women's Ultra Flex - Bright Horizon SneakersAutumn and Winter Belt Buckle, Martin Boots, Girl high Heel, Round Head Short BootsThe 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,Skechers Womens Granola - Hippie Sole - Double Buckle Toe Thong Flip-FlopAir Fun Pop Bubble Flip-Flops Shower Beach Sandals in Cheery colors for Women White Turquoise 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.Opr7 purple Pansy Flower On Yellow Background Running shoes Lightweight for Women Sneaker Outdoor BreathableOpr7 Tropic Exotic Palm Leaves Running shoes Lightweight for Women Sneaker Lace-up Quick DryWhat 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.
T-JULY Fashion Women's Beach Slippers Crystal Solid Wedges Flip Flops Platform Girls SandalsThe 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.
