HiRISE: In a land of rootless cones

tumblr_nzba4lnBsB1rlz4gso1_1280In a land of rootless cones — Flood lava and rootless cones in Cerberus Palus. A rootless cone is a formation that resembles a volcanic crater, but differs in that it is not an actual vent from which lava has erupted, hence “rootless.”

Beautiful Mars series.
