o Endeavour Crater Western Rim

  This digital terrain model covers the western rim of Endeavour Crater
  where the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity has been investigating
  since 2011.

o Active Slope Flows on the Central Hills of Hale Crater

  In some cases, there are many seasonal flows on warm slopes, suggesting
  some role for water in their activity.

o Crater with Debris Aprons in Tyrrhena Terra
  The interior rims of this crater are lined with debris aprons consisting
  of material eroded from the alcoves at the top of the crater walls.

o Valleys in Tyrrhena Terra

  These valleys are very different in appearance compared to the very old,
  large, and well-developed valley networks on Mars.

All of the HiRISE images are archived here:
