Dick gave a very interesting talk, illustrated with still photos and a video. He also passed around two very nice photo books (one with 82 pages and over 380 photos) of the trip. He uses Shutterfly to produce the books.
The kids worked on National Park Junior Ranger projects at stops along the way and earned many badges during the trip.
The group flew to Rapid City, SD where they rented a Ford Taurus which they drove in a circular route, visiting many scenic places in South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado. He used two National Geographics books to research and plan the trip - one on the national parks, the other on highways and byways.

The members enjoyed the presentation and Dick was awarded one of the complementary Kiwanis Club ball point pens.
