Seventeen million years ago, Mizunami in Gifu (currently inland) was under the ocean. We took a half day lecture how to be Indiana Jones!! Actually Indiana Jones was an archaeologist. Fossil digging is a paleontology which I didn’t know. IMG_20160221_105755

It had heavy rain a day before. River was full. We couldn’t see geologic stratum. IMG_20160221_111026

We actually found a many seashells, and pine cone fossil. It was very interesting how fragile organic pine cone was preserved. Many sands got into between plates which maintained the shape of pine cone.
