Am I the only one who's reminded of that clip of Neil Armstrong bounding on the Moon? :)

Excellent image Geoff!

I have a nice example of boulder tracks (at last!):

Just tidying and putting my boulder tracks (which I originally thought were tracks from a spacecraft) in the right thread...

I wonder why the left-hand boulder went on that curve while the other one went straight?

I was thinking the same thing, Geoff. I would guess that it may be rolling downhill and curving as it does so.

I wondered that but there are 3 tracks - 2 appear straight and only the middle one curved.... ???
Odd terrain!

Very strange terrain. I think this curve could be down to the speed or rate of deceleration. The more I look at this image, the more I see it's a good one.  ;D
