Rocky Terrain near Nili Fossae

Rocky Terrain near Nili Fossae
Nearby images have great color and morphologic diversity, so additional coverage of the area is desired to study the geology more fully. There are also formations called breccias, that might originate from the Isidis Planitia impact basin, Hargraves Crater, or possibly both. (“Breccia” refers to rock consisting of angular fragments cemented together.)
