Located in one of the flattest places on the face of this planet are the strange and unexplained Sailing Stones of Racetrack Playa, Death Valley, California. Once a year the "Playa" or flat desert pan experiences short winter rains and becomes slippery as the hexagonal desert floor turns back to mud. During this time the boulders and rocks move leaving clearly visible tracks behind them.
