These geological formations are frequently mentioned in images of Mars, particularly in the higher-resolution imagery from MGS and Mars Odyssey. To see what one looks like from the ground (on Earth), alas, check out the Earth Science Picture of the Day (http://epod.usra.edu/archive/epodviewer.php3?oid=219392) for today.

Ah - so that's what they look like up close. I've seen pictures taken from orbit of the huge ones on Mars. They have a shape somewhat like a capsized boat. :-k
