HiRISE: Within a crater in the Southern Highlands

tumblr_or3nsd64Qd1rlz4gso1_1280Within a crater in the Southern Highlands. This is a very ancient crater, long filled-in. You can see polygonal patterns in the terrain, mainly due to the contraction of subsurface ice as the seasons change.

Beautiful Mars series.
