Welcome to my Flickr site. I have a passion for nature, geology and history. If you really want to know more about me (or if you're just bored and have nothing else to do), see my Autobiography photo set for the low-down on my life.
visited 49 states (98%)Create your own visited map of The United States
I've been lucky enough to get to 49 of the states. Only one more to go (Hawaii). I'll get there eventually. In the meantime, I've stopped counting states and started counting counties.

I've managed to hit all ten of the Canadian Provinces, but I've missed the northern territories.

Up until May 2008 my travels outside of mainland North America (US, Canada, Mexico) had been limited to Puerto Rico and the US and British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean, and Germany in Europe. I have more recently traveled to Italy, Croatia, Albania, Greece, Malta and Turkey in the cental and eastern Mediterranean. And as of September 2009 I've been to Bermuda, and in September 2013 I went to Britain.

"Almost 40,000 photos on Mike's page and such an interesting variety. All of his photographs are well documented and very educational. His knowledge on a wide range of subjects is always impressive.
He has shared photos of his wonderful family on Flickr and it's easy to see Mike has a close and loving family.
I always enjoy his travel photos as I get to see places I will most likely never see in person. :-)"

"Piedmont Fossil's photostream is truly a collection of wonderful treasures of a bygone era. Not only is his passion for history unrivaled, but he's a very gifted writer as well.
It's been quite an honor getting to know him through his photos and conversations. Thank you for sharing your collection."
