Burning Rain- Tell This Story...

Love this!

Writing Prompt: Even NASA cannot explain it. It’s best to gaze in wonder at the sliding rocks on this dry lake bed in Death Valley National Park. Racetrack Playa is almost completely flat, 2.5 miles from north to south and 1.25 miles from east to west, and covered with cracked mud. The rocks, some weighing hundreds of pounds, slide across the sediment, leaving furrows in their wakes, but no one has actually witnessed it. Write a short story explaining what is happening!

Writing Prompt: Where does this road lead and why are you on it?

Sunken Treasure??
