The Racetrack Playa

The Racetrack Playa in Death Valley is one of most interesting places I’ve ever seen. These rocks have moved over thousands of years and how they do it is a mystery. Some speculate that when it rains, which is not very often, the clay gets slippery and strong winds move the rocks which weigh up to a couple hundred pounds.   To get there is an adventure as well. Thirty miles on a single lane “road” of volcanic rock.
