The first trip to the Racetrack was merely to observe the sliding rock oddities, as
recommended by a park ranger. The winter of 1992-93 was unusually wet throughout the
Southwest, and Death Valley was not immune from the excess moisture. The first visit to
the Racetrack took place on a stormy day; snow was falling at higher elevations to the
north along the Racetrack Road, but at the playa the precipitation was falling as rain.
