From Boulder Wars:



The boulder at bottom centre has left a faint track.

Hi Caro

You seem to do well at boulder wars - I normally get a stream of boring images with no boulders, very difficult to choose which one to click!

Yeah, I've seen a lot of those too.
I also spend a lot of time forcing my brain to see the craters as craters, not mounds. Once I recognise them as craters, it's much easier to tell which objects are more likely to be boulders.
Perhaps we could have the light source thingy on Boulder Wars as well?  ;D

I'm guessing this is part of the ejecta blanket stirring up fresh white stuff.
And a boulder track at the top.
