They could be dust devils yes. Although I have a problem with dust devils, but I wont go into that here. I have not seen other localised dust devil
tracks. Any references to these in MER images?
The other thing we need to consider about dust devils is that the right hand "track" starts near the top of the rise or dune.
I suspect that a dust devil (like a tornado) would actually move over the top of the rise and come down again a little way past the top of the hill.
The same thing with the large rock on the left. the tracks seem to start right up close to the rock as far as I can see. Obviously I am not an expert
in this, it is just a suggestion.
Also, as someone mentioned further up the thread, I do see the 'snake-like' thing sticking out of the top left rock on the top right of it. What
springs to mind are sidewinder snakes in the desert. Could it be one of those perhaps? (thats if there is life on Mars of course!) There are other
stick or snake-like wavy shapes in the MER images.
It might be smoke which I have spotted before. It is rather too wiggly for a snake but not sure what else it could be.
If it helps to determine what these tracks are or what made them, in the original official image there is a squarish black rock to the right of these
tracks on a level with the bottom of the small ridge. There is another, more subtle track attached to this rectangular rock. If you need me to point
it out I can, but the squarish black rock is fairly obvious as it is very rectangular and a little way to the right of these tracks I have

The yellow oblong shows where I think there is possibly another track.
