President's Prattle: Kenneth Moore - “Arches and Canyonlands (Utah)”

This was the second of two consecutive presentations by some of our own members: this week our Treasurer, Kenneth Moore, showed that his skills lie more than just in finance. About 3 years ago he’d been on a camping/hiking expedition in the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in the west of the USA and he had some stunning photographs to show for it. Having spent a couple of weeks in this area myself back in 2017, I was really looking forward to his presentation and I thoroughly enjoyed it. He showed photos of a lot of places I’d not been to (I wasn’t on a hiking holiday so my locations were those fairly easily accessible by road). The vistas were out-of-this world: the sheer scale of the landscape is amazing. The icing on the cake was his attention to the flora of the area as well as the landscape, and like Nick Lambert last week he gave us lots of fascinating information about the area, in particular in this case about the geology and the unusual flora.

I’d like to say a big “thank you” to both Nick and Kenneth for all their work in preparing their presentations.
