Racetrack Playa, Death Valley

The sailing stones are a geological phenomenon found in the Racetrack. Slabs of dolomite and syenite ranging from a few hundred grams to hundreds of kilograms inscribe visible tracks as they slide across the playa surface, without human or animal intervention. The tracks have been observed and studied since the early 1900s, yet no one has seen the stones in motion. Racetrack stones only move once every two or three years and most tracks last for three or four years. Stones with rough bottoms leave straight striated tracks while those with smooth bottoms wander.
The sailing stones are most likely moved by strong winter winds, in the upwards of 90 mph, once it has rained enough to fill the playa with just enough water to make the clay slippery. The prevailing southwest winds across Racetrack playa blow to northeast. Most of the rock trails are parallel to this direction, lending support to this hypothesis.

This Weekend’s Hashtag Project: #WHPsuperpower

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

The goal this weekend is to show off your own Instagram superpower! Some tips to get you started: show off your powers of invisibility by blending into your surroundings with a camouflage portrait, set up a vintage scene filled with old objects to create a time warp, or stage an epic superpower battle scene with some creative jumpstagrams (this may take multiple tries).

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the hashtag #WHPsuperpower to photos videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own content to the project. Any content taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
