If so, then this would account for some of the instances but not all. We still have to explain the track without a rock anywhere near the end of it.
on the left hand side of this image one track is somehow connected to the larger rock on the left and towards the camera. There are another couple attached to the two smaller rocks a little to the right of that one.
It looks like some going UP the slope behind the foreground dune because there is a rock at the top end of the track.
I can see how this may be an explanation if there was rock then track but not where there is track and then rock. How do you account for the first picture where this is so?
As you have been told on another of your threads the wind can't move rocks due to the density of the atmosphere but that could be the result of the wind blowing over the rocks and moving the dust/soil behind them.
On Sol 1843 (March 10, 2009), Spirit tried yet again to conquer the modest northeastern slope at Home Plate. “We'd been struggling to get off these little fingers that jut off the northeastern part of Home Plate,” Arvidson recalled. But the loose powdery sand coating the slope ultimately denied the five-driving-wheel rover any significant progress up the slope.
