Elaine Zeiger leads the way as a herd of fossilers takes to the Peace.
Who's taking care of Sue? Two of Sue's friends - Sue being the T-Rex housed at the Chicago Field Museum - joined us on a recent river trip. Irene Buoede (left), and Karen Nordquist (right), are Field Museum volunteers who get to show Sue to the world. They were accompanied by another friend, Elaine Zeigler (middle).
