Some squarish shapes.


Also near the square mesa, and a similar shape. It also seems to be orientated the same as the square mesa.

R0600346 is similar to the square mesa, it is orientated the same and is the same size. Also interesting is where it is and what condition it's in. I
Also it appears to have been eroded much more than the other, probably by water. The terrain here is very similar to just north of Meridiani planum where the water signs are.
