Caitlin's Bucket List

Waterfall Diving

1. Waterfall Diving

In Costa Rica , there are some really cool places to waterfall dive. On the water fall, there are lots of rocks near it or under the waterfall. The rocks are slowly being eroded physically by water. This is also known as water erosion. Water erosion changes the shape of a rock and sometimes chips part of it off. This is what is happening on these rocks under the waterfall.

2. Rope Swinging

Rope swinging is a popular thing to do over a canyon. For instance, the Grand Canyon. A ton of people do it over that canyon. That's where I hope to go one day. Rope swinging involves you holding onto a rope and going down into it. The rocks in these canyons are most likely formed by erosion. Wind, water, and glacier erosion to be more specific. When a glacier moves down a mountain or something, it takes a bit of rock with it. Therefore causing some rounded edges or steep areas. The water chips off some rock. Then finally the wind would blow sand etc. Which also chips the rocks as well. Another erosion that could take place is gravity erosion. With the help of gravity, it causes the glacier to fall down.

3. White Water Rafting

White water rafting is the thing to do on a hot day in the summer. The best place to do it to is in Chile. The water is clear and beautiful in Chile. . There is a lot of jagged rocks in the rapids. These jagged rocks are still eroding right this second. They are slowly being eroded by the waters surrounding it. It is being broken down physically. It is slowly breaking pieces of the rock off and shaping it.

4. Hang Gliding

Hang Gliding is a very fun outdoor activity to do with your family. You can go anywhere you want to go and fly. I want to go fly over Lookout Mountain in Tennessee. The rock formations are amazing to look at. I can only imagine what they look like from above! These types of rocks are probably formed by wind erosion. The wind probably blew a lot of debris at the rocks which caused it to chip off, so therefore the rocks are eroded by wind and is broken down physically.

5. Caves

Finally, the last place I want to visit is Carlsbad Caverns in Roswell, New Mexico. The cave formations are really cool. Inside these caves are tons of stalagmites and stalagtites. These are formed by water hitting the limestone causing a chemical reaction to the limestone changing it's molecules completely. This is also known as chemical erosion.
