Stones move mysteriously over the playa, leaving lines that lengthen each winter as the playa freezes and thaws and freezes and thaws. It was a real journey to get out here. We rented a Jeep for the day and used up 270 miles of our 300 mile daily limit. Much of the 4 hour drive was over a rough, graded road that, due to it's propensity to puncture tires, we drove over at speeds of 15-20 mph. And of course, once we got out there it was hot. Walking on the playa was like walking on a mirror, so much of the days heat was being reflected up at us. We planned to stay until after sunset, but after eating lunch and scouting out a few rocks and lines, neither Naomi or myself were feeling too good. And we had a long bumpy drive back. I figured this shot would do for the day and we called it soon after this one was taken.
