The valley of death and the enigma of the floating stones

In California, the United States, there is a famous place known as the Valley of Death, characterized by floating stones that can move up to 400 meters without human or animal intervention, and in their displacement they leave a quite pronounced trail on the ground. The stones move every two years and the tracks they leave usually last four years.


It is impossible for men to move these stones because access to that area is prohibited. Death Valley is the driest and most arid place in all of North America, hence its name.

There has been much speculation about why these large stones move back and forth, leaving the scientific community astonished, a few years ago it was said that they moved because of seismic activity.

This phenomenon is also attributed to movements caused by the action of ice and wind. But all these speculations were discarded because the planet cannot produce winds of such intensity that they are capable of dragging stones of such magnitude.


The valley of death is located over many tectonic faults, in which, the magnetic attractions are stronger and the movements of magma are more superficial than in other places of the earth, in repeated occasions this has been associated with the movement of the stones but this theory has not been proven because generally, the rocks move in straight line in a perfect and almost premeditated way.

The inclination of the terrain, the small floods in winter, the force of gravity, the cracks in the soil due to erosion, extraterrestrial intervention, and an infinite number of theories surround this mysterious event that for the inhabitants of the area are nothing more than the spiritual essences of the ancestral warrior Indians, who for some reason were trapped inside these mysterious stones.
