Mt. Vantriss is a mountain that was formed by the actions of the jdF tectonic plate. The plate grinds together with another one and results in one plate lifting up and tilting over. This caused a mountain range to form across the tectonic plate separations. This mountain is unique because it is surrounded by a beautiful group many organisms and the life around it is extraordinary. Mt. Vantriss is located near the island of Vancouver. A much smaller island that's surrounded by the blue ocean and many amazing sea creatures. The population of this island which is called the island of Destrie is very small. People that live on the island chose to build a village on the flattest region of it. Many people love to hike up Mt. Vantriss to check out the beautiful view of the island the ocean around it.
Santaiza Falls is a cataract landform that is located in New Zealand. Cataracts and many other waterfalls are formed when the body of water is running down a steep mountain or hill. Then the rocks on the mountain or hill erode enough so that the waterfall goes directly down into a bigger body of water. This cataract's water level decreases 7 inches each year. It is over 100 meters tall. This cataract impacts the people around it with negative ions that cause a positive impact on health, mood, energy and more.
