HiRISE: Bedrock exposed in Hale Crater’s rim

ESP_054701_1430Hale Crater is a large impact crater (more than 100 kilometers) with a suite of interesting features such as active gullies, active recurring slope lineae, and extensive icy ejecta flows. There are also exposed diverse (colorful) bedrock units.

NB: North is down, so that the slope is down to the bottom of the cutout and illumination from upper right. [More at link]
