ESA also has a nice high-resolution (big) synthesized low-perspective image of the crater atop Olympus Mons (http://esamultimedia.esa.int/images/marsexpress/s_016_050504_0037_4_3d_01_CalderaOlympusMons_FAZ.j pg). It would make a nice lake. Let's fill it with water!

Why stop there? Let's go for the whole nine yardangs!

Great photos, BTW. The Olympus Mons shot gave you the feeling, just a little bit, of being there. 8)
