Wow... Funny how the deposits left behind mimmick the way water obscures light. And like I said, what makes you think the government isn't lying about Mars? Temperature and all.
This picture was taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) onboard ESA's Mars Express orbiter, in colour and 3D, in orbit 18 on 15 January 2004 from a height of 273 km. The location is east of the Hellas basin at 41° South and 101° East. The area is 100 km across, with a resolution of 12 m per pixel, and shows a channel (Reull Vallis) once formed by flowing water. The landscape is seen in a vertical view, North is at the top.

If that photo showed a slightly darker yellow area inside that channel instead of blue, you would never think it was water.
If you looked at that 3D image posted by 'internos', you would see that the material that shows up as blue is sometimes on a slope, and is at different elevations.
