La Playa Racetrack - home of the mysterious sliding stones. Though no one has ever seen these rocks move, scientists figure the cause is strong winds on the rare occasion that the land gets icy or wet and the winds are howling through here at 65mph+, and it will literally get the rocks to sliding across the slippery surface. Once it dries, the sliding marks remain for many years to come.
Either that, or it's aliens! Right?
