Slip Sliding Away
The Racetrack – Death Valley NP
The 2×3 mile “Race Track” in Death Valley N.P. is home to the amazing phenomenon of the sliding rocks. Their movement is the result of a combination of conditions beginning with the presence of water that freezes and thaws into fractured sheets of ice. A light wind piles the ice sheets against the rocks, many as much as 35 lbs, and pushes them along on the now slick hard sand floor. The movement leaves a trail as evidence of the movement. All of these conditions may occur only once every 1-2 decades.
