Three sailing stones make their way across the Racetrack Playa of Death Valley on New Year's Eve, 2010. The sailing stones are something of an enigma, in that they leave tracks that are visible in the muddy playa; however, they have never been filmed in motion.

Location: Racetrack Playa, Death Valley
