Twenty-two miles of riding an all-terrain vehicle on rocky mountain path led us to a very secluded beach on Idaho’s Salmon River.
The chilly river waters were a refreshing greeting to our traveling troupe.
This was the first time my son has stepped toe on a sandy beach . . . and it suits him very well.Pass it on:
I had a new experience finding shark’s teeth at the beach this morning. Last year, I learned to look for shark’s teeth at the water’s edge as the waves washed up, as well as in the tiny piles of shells left by the receding tide. My son has the eagle eye and can find the tiniest teeth imaginable.
Today, I found the largest tooth I have ever found in a tide pool. I didn’t know I should be looking there and was shocked to see the tooth about 6 inches below the edge of the water. I wasn’t even sure what it was, but the shape made me reach in and pick it up. My daughter also found a shark’s tooth as large as mine in another tide pool 50 yards away. Her tooth was crystal white and was so new that it had sharp barbs on either side of the main tooth. Sadly, she insisted on carrying her treasure herself and dropped the tooth in the sand on the way back to the car.
While there were some tears on the way home, we learned a few new things about finding shark’s teeth, as well as how to make sure they make it back home.
