About this image

This image shows an example of the terrain that is present at the boundary between the southern highlands and the northern lowlands (the famous dichotomy boundary). This image is located on that boundary in Elysium Planitia, not too far north of Gusev Crater. The high ground appears to be eroding away, breaking into blocks that almost look like they are disintegrating.
