There is something utterly magical about the sailing stones of the Racetrack Playa (sometimes called the Devil's Racetrack) in Death Valley California. Scattered about the desert are large rocks with mysterious trails left behind them. The trails show that these rocks have rolled and zig-zagged across the ground, sometimes for as long as 860 feet.
