About moon towers
Ring structure looks much like crater: rims of those are higher than surroundings so wind would blow CO2 ice away from those points. (like it does to snow)
And about "semi-bright" areas of ice caps.. big dust storms cover whole Mars periodically and move dust to surface of CO2 ice, and amount of dust varies depending on distance to bare surface. (and direction of wind)
Also landscape has altitude differences which affects to atmospheric pressure temperature causing CO2 ice to form at different times to different places, which causes strange shapes.
