On the above Link you find a Hi-Res image of the D and M pyramid. Zoom into the lower right Quadrant of the "Pyramid" and notice the "trail" that zig zags from the lower elevations cutting between two hills then taking a hard left across the slope, increasing elevation all the while. It disappears into the Obfuscated area in the middle of the photogragh. Some could say it is just part of the naturally eroded slope cntinued on the other side of the obfuscated area however I feel that it may just be coincidental that the two lines match up. the path on the left side of the blurr is a dramatic slope of erosion while the right side is packed. I could be wrong but if I were going to traverse a hill of this size then that would be the easiest elevation slope and path.

Could they be giant worms like in the movie Dune ?

We wont know till we go there..and get eaten !!

I see lots of trails, I'm not sure if there is wind on mars (I believe there is) but these lines/trails look like wind blown dirt or very old lava flows.

Personally I find the "pyramid" more interesring because of the nearly perfect right angle present. Right angles are extremely rare in nature.

What right angle? If you zoom in there is nothing even close to one.

What planet are you two on? And don't say Mars!

the wind does leave alot of trails in the sand. That's more likely the best explanation for these. If you look above the trails towards ridge the is exposed bedrock that looks sedementary. The presence of that sedementary bedrock would indicate to me that it is a natural formation and not "built".

If those are trails, then what ever left them are miles wide...

Im going to hazard a guess here that the image is taken from WAY TO FAR AWAY for animal tracks to show up.....

It's more about the resolution of the pictures than the distance. The resolution is way too low to see animal tracks, so you're right - unless the hypothetical animals are larger than anything on Earth.

One of the tracks looks like a boulder trail. You can still see the boulder near the end of it.

No offense, but your complete lack of basic understanding regarding your source material here is a solid example of how this ignorance is brought about. If you were really interested in this stuff...beyond the imaginary fantastical, you would take the few minutes required to properly understand what you are looking at.

But you don't. You don't because you want to believe in the absurd so much that it has blinded you to common sense, reason, logic and reality.

And people wonder why we have to put up with the reputation we have. Sad.

Though I don't agree with the OP I also don;t agree with the argument that they must of been HUGE animals..

It could simply been well used tracks made by small beasts..

Ever seen tracks in Africa etc made by thousands of migrating, small animals??

Or even the tracks supposedly on the moon made by man with tiny feet?

Maybe, I never thought of that.

On the other hand, the only track I see that might be what you say looks as though it goes through a boulder (or maybe a hill) at one point and possibly starts at a boulder? I guess the boulder could have been moved to the "track" later but if that's the case whatever forces moved the boulder there didn't obliterate the track.

Then again, what if it isn't a boulder? It could be a giant Rhinoceros. In fact it could be anything.


GRRRRR! This is what hacks me off about looking at/for possible anomalies on these images. Most of the time you can't be sure of what you're looking and end up wishing you had higher resolution pics.

I still have doubts about the tracks idea though. It may be some kind of escarpment. Some of the hilltops look just like the "tracks" too.

I've HAD to scour plenty of desert images looking for trails, tracks, and holes. If this image came to me while in afghanistan, we would consider this a prime target for our next patrol. This landform is not a built pyramid and it is not large enough to host tracks "miles wide". I know it maybe hard to see that they ascend the landform up the easiest slope. The alleged trail does coincide with the landlide on the opposite side of the obfuscated central region of the land form however that crevace might provide a more stable foothold than the raw slope. They may not be tracls, trails at all. Having said that let me address the personal context of your post. You don't know a thing about and just because you say "no offense" does not mean you should follow that statement with beratement. Get some social skills.

These marking do seem to take the easy route but they are also probably very very old..
So who's to say they're not the tracks left by past water movement even?

It's just too big a call with what we see to call animal tracks..

if they were made by water there would be trenching toward the middle area between the two fingers getting wider the lower the elevation is due to graduall increase in water volume and speed. But that's just my humble opinion

True but with such low resolution pics could you really make out such a difference..

I was merely pointing out that it could be anything, not that IMO it was water.

Yeah the pics suck in resolution but they are the highest resolution i could find. I held on to this image for months before posting because i wanted to find a better one, look at it again, and guess from there.

Well I cropped and enlarged a piece in excel and to be honest, it may be just a shallow cliff facing..
We see them often here on earth..

That's what I was trying to say in my previous post.

An escarpment is a steep slope or long cliff that results from erosion or faulting and separates two relatively level areas of differing elevations.
