o Light-Toned Layers in Tithonium Chasma

  Approximately 800 kilometers long, Tithonium Chasma is part
  of the massive Valles Marineris canyon system.

o Ridge and Talus in Lycus Sulci

  This image nicely captures several influential geologic processes
  that have shaped the landscape of Lycus Sulci.

o Yardang-Sculpted Deposits from Apollonaris Patera

  We see here a terrain with an incredible morphologic dichotomy: a
  relatively smooth region that transitions into sharp ridges.

All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
