Sites Explored (Chronological listing)
The following is a list of the expeditions we have undertaken. 
This list is organized chronologically, but you can also view the sites by location.  If you're a regular visitor to this site, bookmark this page, so you can see the most recent expeditions without searching for pages marked as "new" (since that's not accurate all the time).  New visitors would do better to view the sites by location.


Note: Most galleries are graphically intensive (though not very intensively graphic), so they will take a while to load if you have a slow connection.

Also, because the majority of these photos were taken in low light, you may only be able to see the greatest amount of detail if you turn up the brightness and/or contrast on your monitor.
