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 Brinley Co Womens Faux Leather Regular, Wide Extra Wide Calf Mid-Calf Rou.Pacific Trail Women's Lawson Walking shoesCanyonlands—ancient, T-JULY Fashion Stylish Women Over-The-Knee Boots Pointed Toe Thin High Heels shoesTOTO - L08101 - 2.4 Inches Taller - Height Increasing Elevator shoes - Grey Black Lightweight Denim Sneakersprimeval, 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.G.H. Bass & Co. Womens Gretchen Dress PumpSALOMON Women's Sense Ride GTX Invisible Fit Trail Running 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. Loeffler Randall Womens Cami-ks PumpPajar Men's Galton Snow BootsSome 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, Adidas Mens Superstar 80 Leather White Maroon Trainers 8 USLegero Women's Mira Hi-Top Trainers, Grey (Stone 94), 5 UK“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.Miz Mooz Women's Violin PumpFrye Womens Brielle Zip Peep Bootie Boot Nike Women's Lunar Exceed TR Training shoesMen's Summer Sports Korean Low-Cut Casual shoes Leather Breathable New 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,Chaniotakis Women's Loafer with TasselFABI Boots Womens Leather Silver standing as high as 400 feet, sentinels standing guard over this land. To the Navajos who live here, this is a sacred land, Fashion Pleated Winter Boots shoes Pointed Toe Zipper Ankle Boots for Women Super High Heels Ladies BootsEnglish Laundry Mens Carl Slip-On Loaferrich 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, Rockport Women's Zalee Lace-Up Fashion Sneaker BlackPUMA Safety Womens Celerity Knit SDjewelry, 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. Official Brand Rocket Dog Loki Biker Boots Womens Footwear shoesCharles David Charles Womens GURU BootThe 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,Columbia Womens Redmond Mid Waterproof-w Mid Hiking BootsWomen's Boots, High Heel Ankle Boots Comfortable Handmade Leather Boots Retro Fashion Dress Wedding Boots 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.Converse Women's Chuck Taylor Core Ox Fashion Sneaker Black Monochrome7 M USSALOMON Women's XA Pro 3D W Trail Running 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.
Picard Torrino, Men’s Shoulder BagThe 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. Adidas Womens Superstar Floral Leather TrainersAdidas Pure Boost DPR Women's Running shoes - SS19We visited an organic pineapple plantation (delicious), stopped at a farm where we watched how hearts of palm were harvested and then tasted them in homemade tortillas cooked over an open fire,Kunsto Men's Leather Brogue Dress shoesGabor Women's Warbler Wedge Heel Sandals drank coconut milk and visited with a very kind and gracious couple who opened their home to us.
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.PADDERS Men's Terrain Leather Waterproof Lace Up shoes (970 11)M by Bruno Magli Men's Napoli Driving Style Loafer, Cognac, 11 M US.
