    When it rains the dry river/lake beds turn into slippery clay. Flashfloods can move the rocks, but people also drive around in their trucks and dune buggies leaving tracks and moving rocks around. Imagine skipping a rock on water, same idea but it dries like this.

While drilling in 1971 in Derweze (in the middle of the Karakum Desert), Soviet geologists tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas. The ground collapsed, leaving a 230-ft hole. To avoid poisonous gas discharge, they decided to let it burn off (thinking it would be a matter of days). It's still burning today, earning the nickname "The Door to Hell".
