Dunes of Mars

From the NASA website:

Dunes of sand-sized materials have been trapped on the floors of many Martian craters. This is one example, from a crater in Noachis Terra, west of the giant Hellas impact basin. The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured this view on Dec. 28, 2009.

The dunes here are linear, thought to be due to shifting wind directions. In places, each dune is remarkably similar to adjacent dunes, including a reddish (or dust colored) band on northeast-facing slopes. Large angular boulders litter the floor between dunes.

Sedona in the Snow

Here's another Flickr favorite -- this time from Flickr user Laura Travels.

Although I lived in Arizona for a couple of years, I never did make it up to Sedona in the wintertime. Wish I had!
