This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a high resolution view (nearly 1.8 meters; 6 feet per pixel) of landforms in the Granicus Valles region, west of the Elysium volcanoes. Layered rock and some large, dark boulders are among the features observed. The image is located near 27.4N, 224.8W, and covers an area only 1.1 km (0.7 mi) across. The scene is illuminated by sunlight from the lower left.
