Hi,

because our passion is not only about rocks and is made at 50% by trips, discoveries, and people I will post here pictures of my hunting spots, japanese panorama, people, place which made my fossil hunting trips particular, memorable and enriched me as much as fossils do.

I hope you will enjoy this thread and that you will be able to have an insight of my Japan.

Thank you but i think that tff members would be interested in pictures from your locations too. We have the chance to have a past time that bring us to places in the wild, that only few people can see.

Lets make our fellow hunters travel with us.

 

I will continue to post interesting picture.

I do the best that I can. Here is My most recent trip. 

But most of My digging is not for fossils as there are not any close to Me.

Here is a trip report on a local (for Me) dig.

Thanks again for the virtual trip to Your digging sites.

Tony
