Ben's Bucket List
Ben Wuensche, 1st Period
1. Aogashima Volcano
Aogashima Volcano is an island in Japan. Every day the waves slowly weather away at the rocky cliffs of the island using physical weathering. I really want to go here because it is so pretty.
2. Fly Geyser
Fly Geyser in Nevada, USA, is quite possibly the coolest place on Earth. The geyser was formed with oxidation, a type of chemical weathering. When water shoots out of the top, the rock erodes away. I want to go here because it looks really weird and amazing.
3. Great Blue Hole
The Great Blue Hole in Brazil is truly a sight to behold. Before the last ice age, it was a limestone cave. But through physical weathering and water erosion, the cave collapsed, leaving this giant blue hole.
4. Mount Roraima
Mount Roraima in Brazil/Venezuela/Guyana (it's complicated) is basically a huge and amazing cliff. The strange formations on top of the mountain were formed by physical weathering and erosion of the wind.
5. Lake Hillier
Lake Hillier in Western Australia is pink. Who would not want to see a pink lake? That is so weird. Lake Hillier is pink because of the bacteria in the salt of the lake. The bacteria contains a red dye. When the salt dissolves through chemical weathering and water erosion, the red dye is let loose into the lake, causing it to look pink.
