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 Saturdays NYC Men's VASS Slip On SneakersDiesel Mens Zip - Round S - Nentish Strap-M Fashion SneakerCanyonlands—ancient, Women's Nike Air Max Sequent Running shoes Fuchsia Glow orange Purple Black Size 8.5 M USXYD Women Pointed Toe Kitten Mules Low Heels Slip On Pumps Slide Sandals Clog shoesprimeval, 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.Women's Long Boots, Fall Winter Thick Heel High Boots Ladies Scrub Waterproof Platform Knee Fashion Boots (color Black, Size 35)Pleaser Womens INFINITY-3028 B M Boot color Blk Stretch Pat Blk Size 5 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. Durango Women's DRD0197 Western Boot BrownACE FxG Firm Ground Boots - SGreenSome 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, J Slides Women Lilia White 9.5 M USMuck Boots Women's Arctic Weekend Boot, Black Maroon, Womens 5“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.black Giardini shoes Woman Low Sandals flip Flops P805803D 707Bogs Men's Highliner Pro Tall ST Fishing Boot Adidas ORIGINALS Handball Spezial UK 8 Core BlkTeva Mens Terra-Float 2 Universal Textile SandalsSome 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,Adidas ORIGINALS Womens Stan Smith Fashion Sneakers Fashion SneakerT-JULY Summer Women Wedge Causal shoes Platform Lace up Trainers Sneakers Ladies shoes 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, Comfy Moda Women's Winter Snow Boots Genuine Cow Suede Leather Cold Weather Full Lined Water-Resistant PragueVANELi Womens Mariem Suede Embellished Wedges Black 10.5 Medium (B,M)jewelry, 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.

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.Jeffrey Campbell Womens Brutish Knee High BootAzura by Spring Step Women's Meklit PumpWhat 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.
ARIAT Womens Round Up Wide Square Toe Western 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.

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's Swift Run Primeknit Originals Running shoes Black Grey Five 13 D(M) USBadgley Mischka Womens Fiorenza Heeled Sandal.
