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 INC International Concepts Womens Gannie12 Closed Toe MulesAN Womens Chunky Heels Pointed-Toe Imitated Suede Boots DKU02493Canyonlands—ancient, Owaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Green Mountain State Vermont FlagOwaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Mardi Gras Masksprimeval, 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.Owaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Macedonia FlagOwaheson Lace-up Sneaker Training shoes Mens Womens Hungary Flag National Emblem 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. 1TO9 Ladies Assorted colors Chunky Heels Low-Cut Uppers Sheepskin SandalsAllhqFashion Women's Kitten-Heels Solid Round Closed Toe Patent Leather Zipper 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, Sandals Mens Summer Comfortable Ladies Unisex Aqua Water shoes Quick Drying Barefoot SneakersSam Carle Women's Black Pumps,Closed Pointed Toe Low Kitten Heel Spring Office Dress 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.AllhqFashion Women's Pull On Kitten Heels Pu Solid Mid Top BootsKAOKAOO Leather Low Heeled shoes Side Zipper Casual Boots for Women Flats New Snow Bootswish New Snow Boots Female with Korean Version of Martin Boots Winter Cotton Woman Big Code Cross Border-AlibabaLady Summer Thick-Soled Slippers,A Font Height Fashion SlipperSome 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,Womens Sea Panda Fashion SneakersMET RXL Ladies Fashion Sandals Breathable mesh shoes high Casual 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, Bella Marie Womens Helena-20 Pumps shoes1TO9 Womens Spikes Stilettos Pointed-Toe Urethane Boots MNS03206jewelry, 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. 1TO9 Womens Wedges Platform Square-Toe Black Urethane Oxfords shoes - 4.5 B(M) USDoris Fashion Women's Evening Wedding Heels Glitter Rhinestone Floral Sandals Summer SlipperThe 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,Women's Summer colorful Rhinestone Fashion Personality Light Slipper Wedge Heel Beach Flip FlopsMET RXL Lady,Summer,Open Toe,Wear,A-line Slipper Flat,Square Head,Flat Heel Cool Drag 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.J.

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. Style & Co.
