Nathan's Bucket List

April 10, 2014

Mountain Climbing

I want to go mountain climbing at Ben Nevis in Scotland because I want to try something new.

Wind and water caused some of the mountain to break away to form jagged areas on the mountain. Gravity would have made the rocks fall down and most likely break down on its own while descending if it had broken off of a tall mountain.

Rope Swinging

I want to rope swing at Corona Arch, close to Moab, Utah. It looks like a lot of fun.

The weathering and erosion that takes most often here is wind erosion because it would be picking up sand and hitting the rocks with the sand until it left an arch like the picture below.

Great Pyramid of Giza

I want to the Great Pyramids of Giza, close to Cairo, Egypt. I have read a series about Egyptian gods, and I would like to see some of the pyramids in person.

The weathering and erosion that battered the pyramids is wind erosion. The wind would be carrying sand and it would be pounding on the pyramids when the wind was there.


I want to skydive around Hawaii. I want to try something new.

The weathering that would have taken place is water because it would have broken down pebbles into sand. Then the water would have carried some sediment away to deposit at the bottom of the ocean.

The World's Most Exciting Job: GoPro Bomb Squad Skydiving


I want to snowboard in the Alps in Germany. I watched the Olympics and it looked fun, so therefore; I want to try it.

The weathering is physical weathering which is ice. The water when the ice melted would most likely carry away some of the sediments, and then the process starts over again.
