Hiya AO,

I think from this pic....


.... that there's clearly a thin 'crust' on the soil, with much darker material underneath.

I dunno how that squares with the 'mud' pics....


....but on the above 'mud' pic - what on earth is that white-halo'd blob at the bottom of the 'mud slip'?
It appears on 2 other pics, taken at different wavelengths (that can be seen if you hit the 'Back to Panoramic Camera Sol 002' link), so it's not a bit error or such like.

regds, martin.
