Photographer's Note

Moving rock at the Race Track, Death Valley National Park. This location is famous for the unusual sights. Rock that left their tracks on the surface of this ancient dry lake. No one had ever see these rock move.
There are studies been done and also many theories on how the rocks are move. the most logical theories is that the surface of this ancient lake is composed of silt and mud, which are slippery when wet. So the whole thing could happen when there is rain in the region cause the surface to be slippery at the same time strong wind occurs in the region pushed on the rock and cause it to move and left the track behind.
