Impact

Although this rock out on the dry lake bed of Race Track Playa didn't actually crash land from space…it almost appears to be a meteor that slammed into Death Valley and slid across the dry, cracked playa. These sliding rocks are all over the playa…and mysteriously slide across the ground when conditions are just right. Water, ice and a bit of wind…and yet people still don't know for sure why it happens.
