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 GenePeg Women Slip-On Flip Flops 2018 Sexy Crystal Heeled Sandals Sexy Bling Ladies High Heels Party shoesComfortiva Womens Lemont Low Top Lace Up Fashion SneakersCanyonlands—ancient, Nine West Women's Clariot Synthetic Wedge SandalYHFJYT Breathable Mesh Plate shoes Mexican Tacos Fashion Sports 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.Ladola Womens Pointed-Toe Slip-Resistant Urethane Pumps shoesRefyds-es gold bee Womens Fashion Low Top Canvas Cloth 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.

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, AmoonyFashion Women's Solid High-Heels Round Closed Toe Imitated Suede Pull-on BootsBrilliant sun Faux Leather Mid Calf Boots Women Fashion Snakeskin Chunky Square Booties“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.Qupid EA99 Women Suede Pointy Toe Tassel Wrapped Western Bootie - RustStarbay Womens Athletic Water shoes Aqua Sock, Yellow, White 37913-8B(M) US BCBGeneration Womens Malinda Ballet FlatElsa Wilcox Women's Classic Chunky High Heel Tassel Platform Wedge Oxford Wingtip Square Toe Slip On Loafer shoesSome 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,Eclimb Womens Faux Fur Platform Wedge Heel Snow Boots Winter BootsGaryline Women Fashion Pointed Toe Pump Studded Slip On Rivet Stiletto Dress Heels standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land. To the Navajos who live here, this is a sacred land, WeenFashion Womens Round Closed Toe High Heels PU Solid Boots with Glass DiamondNew Women Sandals Pointed Toe Ankle Strap Thin Heels shoes Summer Club Fashion Wedding Women shoesrich 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, ONCEFIRST Women's Leather High Top Hiking shoes Waterproof SneakersAmoonyFashion Women's Closed Toe Buckle PU Solid High-Heels Sandals with Charmsjewelry, 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,AmoonyFashion Womens Closed Round Toe Kitten Heels PU Short Plush Solid Boots with Heighten Inside, Brown, 7.5 B(M) USDETAIWIN Women's Penny Loafers Low Heel Round Toe Classical Elegant Comfort Flats Driving Moccasins Walking Slip On shoes 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.Owaheson Platform Lace up Sneaker Casual Chunky Walking shoes Low Top Women Sicily FlagWomen's Martin Boots Women England Retro Leather Thick with Short Tube Laced Leather Motorcycle Boots High Top Snow Boots Waterproof Boot Warm FashionWhat 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.
