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 Gola Women's Quota II Liberty Sneaker Light Grey MultiGeox Womens Ladies Myria SneakerCanyonlands—ancient, Women Distressed Leatherette Perforated Cap Toe Zip Military Boot DD16 - TanWHL.LL Hollow Fish Mouth Cool Boots with Open Toe High Heels Roman shoes Sexy Stiletto shoes Heeled Sandals(Heel Height 6-8cm)primeval, 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.Nine Seven Genuine Leather Women's Pointy Toe Block Heel Lace Up Comfort Handmade Ankle BootiesL@YC Women's Sandals Summer Single shoes with a Buttoned with a Square Head with a Patent Leather 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. Belle by Sigerson Morrison Women's Maia Ballet FlatBaretraps Womens Bt Shania Riding BootSome 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, Nine Seven Suede Leather Women's Pointed Toe High Stacked Heel Sexy Handmade Dress Ankle BootsNine Seven Genuine Leather Women's Round Toe Flat Platform Wedge Heel Cute Handmade in Front Zip Women Pumps“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.ROMIKA Womens Cassie 41 FlatEasy Spirit Womens Solstice Penny Loafer J. Renee Women's Faleece Low Block Heel SlingbackAdidas - Tubular Defiantpk WSome 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,Josef Seibel Neele 01, Women’s Hi-Top TrainersEithy Women's Shacce Stiletto Ankle-high Zipper Leather Boots standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land. To the Navajos who live here, this is a sacred land, Marc Fisher Women's Faee Flat SandalChestnut Fumak Lady shoes Waterproof Genuine Leather Snow Boots Natural Fur Winter Boots Warm Classic Women Bootsrich in the ancient traditions of their ancestors, carried on to this day.
Back on the bus, we drove to the Museum of Northern Arizona, which houses pottery, Clarks New Unstructured By Un Kenneth Brown Mens 11.5Men's Oxford shoes, Business Soft Leather Casual shoes Summer Leather Breathable Single shoes Dress Men's 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,REEB SLIP ON OXFORD, STEEL TOE - FOOTWEAR MEN'S FOOTWEAR MEN'S WORK BOOTSGeorgia Men's Oiler 6 Brown ST Waterproof Lace Up Leather Work Boots 15M G6174 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.Women Spring Fall WinterHeels Platform Cowboy Western SnowECCO shoes Women's Gillian Lace Fashion Sneakers, Moon, 36 EU 5.5-6 M USWhat 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.

We saw a wide variety of animals including sloths, crocodiles, monkeys, otters, turtles, iguanas, king fishers, toucans, and every imaginable bird, flower, and butterfly.
