Moving Stones in Death Valley

Death Valley is perhaps the most mysterious and at the same time the most delightful place in North America. The valley is located at the bottom of the lake that existed here millions of years ago and is below sea level. These factors, as well as salt deposits, create a fancy pattern on the ground in the form of a grid of irregular hexagons. But besides this surrealistic landscape, in the Death Valley there is another geological phenomenon, which scientists have not yet found an explanation for, these are self-moving stones.

From time to time, boulders of various shapes and weights move, leaving behind them a shallow, but distinct trace several tens of meters in length. The climate of Death Valley is considered the driest on the planet. In the summer months there is unbearable heat, so the best time to visit this natural miracle is from November to April.
