This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows the wind-eroded surfaces of the Labou Vallis system. The original valley walls and floor were covered with a material that was later eroded by wind to form the sharp, rough textured terrain seen here. Avalanches of dust formed dark streaks on some slopes. This picture is located near 8.5S, 154.7W. It is illuminated by sunlight from the left.
