The Racetrack in Death Valley

The Racetrack Playa (dry lakebed)
The Racetrack is known for its strange moving rocks
From Wikipedia: The sailing stones are most likely moved by strong winter winds, in the upwards of 90 mph, once it has rained enough to fill the playa with just enough water to make the clay slippery. The prevailing southwest winds across Racetrack playa blow to northeast. Most of the rock trails are parallel to this direction, lending support to this hypothesis. wiki
