Racetrack Playa


Racetrack Playa? Where is it? What's going on there?

Racetrack Playa is a dry playa lake or temporary. Dry season the surface is dry, hard and rough as well ... but in the rainy season the surface will become wet and soggy as well ....
There Racetrack Playa in Death Valley, United States ....

There are strange in this place,,,, because in this place often sailing stone, stone gliding or moving stone or if translated into rock moves ...
Stone when thrown, pushed or moved by humans, animals or the other could move .. it is not a strange news. However, oddly enough, the stones were there to move themselves ...
It is said that the movement of the stones is estimated to occur 2-3 years. Shape the stones that move was varied, there is a large and small. Their grooves are different, there is a zig-zag, straight line or half-circle and can reach tens of meters away .. Each groove marks the movement of these stones can survive up to four years ,,,,,, great!

The phenomenon of moving the stone was discovered by two people geologist in 1948 .. At that time people did not notice it so had forgotten ... but in 1968 returned up to seven years studied. The researchers said the winds that move the stones. But unfortunately this theory is questionable.
Until now, experts are still researching the gliding stone with GPS, satellite photography and video as well .....

Well,,,, I so want to go there to see directly ... hehehee (laughs)


Okay all,,, hopefully my writing this time there are benefits too and thanks ...
