The sailing stones are a geological phenomenon found in the Racetrack. Slabs of rock engrave visible tracks as they slide across the playa surface, without human or animal intervention. The rocks move when ice sheets over a thin layer of water are pushed by the high winds commonly experienced in the area leaving long tracks to mark the path of movement.
