Phillip's Bucket List

April 10, 2014

#1 - Skiing

I want to go skiing in Frisco, Colorado because the experience seems enjoyable! Physical weathering formed the cold ski slopes that I would see as I'm racing down the slope. Erosion by water and wind moves the snow and ice around and is frequently changing the mountains the slopes are on.

#2 - Snowboarding

I want to go snowboarding in Davos, Switzerland because it looks like a fun thing to do! Physical weathering carved the mountains that I would see as I'm zooming with the snow. Erosion by water and wind moves the snow and ice around and creates more snow for the slopes.

#3 - Whitewater Rafting

I want to go whitewater rafting in Salmon, Idaho. The rocks along the edge of the river were created by physical weathering by the rushing water. The running water in the river erodes the sediment along the currents.

#4 - Skydiving

I want to go skydiving in Fox Glacier, New Zealand. The shore I would see as I'm zooming down the sky was created by physical weathering by the water in the ocean. The water also erodes the sediment on the shoreline.

#5 - Zip Lining

I want to go zip lining in Estes Park, Colorado because it seems breath-taking. The landscape I'm seeing going down the line was shaped by physical weathering by wind and water. The water from rain erodes the dirt and soil on the ground.
