During the 1980s, Al Kesselheim and his wife, Mary Pat Zitzer, were paddling on the Porcupine River in the Yukon when he stopped on a sand bar to pee. He saw the tip of the horn of this 25,000-year-old bison skull sticking out of the sand and dug it up. Al says the skull represents a window to an ancient landscape, a window on the evolution of a place, a reminder of our tiny fraction of time here on earth. Holding the skull, Al says he can imagine being on that same river and seeing these spectacular creatures.
