Hokkaido University (visit 2)

Naoaki and I, after eating yakisoba, headed out towards Hokkaido University. We ended up basically canvasing from one end to the other, catching all the ponds and forested areas and many other points of interest not shown on the maps below. We spent 3.5 hours there alone. A lot of fun. Saw several birds of interest. Raked up a total of 13 Kilometers (8 miles) this day.
