ACRA Spring Board Meeting
ACRA Board Meeting in Ogden
A snowy mountain vista greeted ACRA board members when they met in Ogden, Utah on March 8 for the spring board meeting. After the hard work was over, ACRA president Mike Polk hosted a tour of the Golden Spike National Historic Site in Promontory. The photos below show Mike talking to the group about the archaeology of the site, and Ian Burrow, ACRA's Vice President for Government Relations, posing with the 'golden spike' on the symbolic railroad tie.
On the road back to town, Mike showed the group the remains of a 1920s(?) wooden stave pipe culvert and the crumbling remains of the pipe eroding out of the arroyo bank -- while the group peers nervously over the precipice.
