My two companions scrambled up the soggy slope with agile ease, and I lumbered along behind. My main job, as usual, was to throw sticks for the four-footed friend, but our real mission was finding fossils. Around Juneau, we don’t expect to find dinosaurs, ichthyosaurs, or mammoths, such as those found up north. Nor do we find fossil remains of bears, caribou and foxes, such as those in the caves of Prince of Wales Island. Nope, nothing quite so spectacular.
