Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter - In the Transition Zone

Uploader comment: Nestled between mesas, this image shows the valley floor where eroded rocky and/or soil debris appears to have flowed viscously from the msea walls across the valley to merge. A leading theory is that ice and snow became entrained with the soil debris as it shed from the mesa.
