Hisako Hibi - "Treasure hunting"

On these trips, some people found arrowheads belonging to native american tribes that had once inhabited the area, topaz, and other "treasures." We must remember that although they were allowed outside of the gates, they were still being watched, as is apparent from the presence of the guard tower here.
