Paul says…

Getting to ‘The Racetrack’ in Death Valley, California, is no mean feat. Forget your standard rental car, this needs a 4×4 Jeep or similar along with a strong head and stomach for the hours of washboard and rough rock driving down snaking paths to get to the right place.

Just after another geological feature – ‘the Grandstand’ – is where the mystery comes to life before your eyes.

To this day, people still don’t really know what makes the rocks move. What I do know is that there are a lot of them, and they’re not on strings! Death Valley is hot enough to make taking photos such as this a not-so-pleasant experience in the peak of summer, but it was the only chance I’d have for a while so it was time to make the most of it.

Death Valley has always been impressive enough to me in its own right – quite how these rocks go ‘racing’ every day just adds a layer of intrigue about this isolated area of the California desert.

Location: Death Valley National Park, California, USA
