Zac's Bucket List
Skydiving Over Airlie Beach
Airlie Beach is located in Queensland, Australia. I think it would be a cool place to skydive because of the cool view on the beach. The beach was carved out by water (physical weathering), and the water carried the broken up rock away (erosion). I would take my dad & whoever my best friend is at the time. Airlie Beach is 8,364 miles from College Station, Texas & I would travel there by plane.

Scuba Diving In The Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is located on the coast of Australia. It is the largest coral reef system in the world (covering over 133,000 square miles). The Great Barrier Reef is home to over 1,500 colorful species of fish such as dugongs (relatives to the manatee), clown fish, and 30 different species of whales, dolphins, and porpoises. Physical weathering occurred here, and the ocean currents (water) was the force of erosion. I would travel there by plane & would take my dad, mom, & sister. The Great Barrier Reef is 8,423 miles from College Station, Texas.

White-Water Rafting down the Magpie River, Canada
The Magpie River is located in Canada. The force of weathering is water (physical) & the force of erosion is also water.The water has carved out some areas, but since it still hasn't cleared all of the rocks, there are lots of rocks which create swift currents called rapids. I would go with just my dad because we both enjoy the outdoors. I would go on a floatplane to the beginning of the river & begin rafting.
Visiting the mysterious blue hole in Belize
One of the greatest mysteries of the world is the blue hole in Belize. Scientists still aren't sure what caused it. The force of weathering is water (physical) & the force of erosion is also water. I would go there with my family and a few friends & get there by a cruise ship. the blue hole is located 1,073 miles from College Station.
Walking on the skywalk at the Grand Canyon
The skywalk at the Grand Canyon is an amazing architectural structure. The wind and water were the forces of weathering (physical). The force of erosion was also the wind and water. I would go with my mom because we both would enjoy the skywalk. I would drive there to see the cool land on the way. The Grand Canyon is located 985.93 miles from College Station.
