Here ya go!
"Another controversial photo, shown at right, reveals much larger forms that look like spreading trees as seen from above. No less a personage than respected author Arthur C. Clarke opined that they resemble Earth's Banyan trees. He too noted that these forms appear to change with the seasons, growing with the warmth and increased sunlight of Mars's spring season, just as vegetation would. But NASA has likewise explained these shapes as some kind of freezing/defrosting phenomenon or a part of the "bizarre geology" of Mars."
the link to the picture refered to:
Or if you prefer the story:
that photo really made me wonder what the heck is REALLY up there..
This is old news to me, I saw these after the MGS started mapping, but a lot of people might not have, and...if you have...you might wanna look again

Just because there are clouds and atmosphere doesn't mean it's the same as on Earth. I'm no scientist but I believe the majority of the atmosphere on Mars is Carbon Dioxide and so is the ice at the polar regions.
