This week’s question comes from Ken Roberts.

The media reported that due to quarantine from the coronavirus pandemic herds of goats had descended from the Great Orme to stroll the now-quiet streets of a nearby coastal town. 

What is the connection of that village to Utah? 

What event is planned on the Orme that coincides with a Utah 2020 event?
