  1. What I want to know is , just exactly WHO is bringing all that ice to Death Valley in the first place ???

  2. I just figured out how the pyramids were built. must have been quite a strong breeze to get that cap stone up there.

  3. In Netherlands there are rocks from Scandinavia, 2000 kilometers away. They are moved by ice from the ice age 10.000 years ago.

  4. in romania theres a tourist spot where are some stones called grannys that grow every year , this is the same , the tracks are just old.

  5. in quraan chapter 27 vers 88
    allah says ( and you will see the mountains and think them solid, but they shall pass away as the passing away of the clouds .
    the work of Allah, who perfected all things, verily! he is well acquainted with what you do.

  6. The large white arrow mystery now troubles me, apparently hovering above the rock moving by unknown forces?
    This video evidence could be faked l guess. Perhaps some people missed it?

  7. Yano this has just started on Mars but nasa are refusing to realise the footage till they can make some crazy story and cash up on it.

  8. George Stanley figured out it was windblown ice foes in 1955. "Origin of Playa Stone Tracks, Racetrack Playa, Indo County, California," bulletin of the Geology Society of America, November 1966.

  9. Though the mystery is explained it’s remarkable that this set of circumstances could come together and occur naturally. How many other mysteries are just the same?

  10. Anyone from Minnesota, Wisconsin, or Michigan could have quickly solved this mystery. All you need is heavy winds during ice-out and you get massive damage on lake shores.

  11. But thats what it always was, ever since i first read about it , it wss a fascinating natural phenomenon ( like seasons or the tide)but not a mystery

  12. I thought the rocks moved slightly uphill? Water will always flow downhill and ice on water will move downhill no matter how much wind is blowing against a rock. Ice sheets are flat and won't catch much wind.
