This a shot of one of the famous moving rocks in a place called the Race Track. It is 28 miles out in the desert. The rocks leave tracks from their movement. They believe that when the playa gets wet the wind can actually slide these rocks across it making the tracks. It is a very interesting place. Some say it is caused by magnetic forces and some say aliens... who knows.

Great shots Bill.

I have heard of this before but I've never actually seen it. Kind of spooky.

Fantastic shots there, I was about to say that it's only photographers that move those rocks around, but I see Bahadir has beaten me to it!
