Life on Mars




The Tablelands is mostly barren, because the minerals in peridotite -- things like nickel and cadmium -- are toxic to most plant life. (The patches of green are mostly where swaths of non-toxic soil from somewhere else has been deposited.)

It was rainy so we didn't hike that far, but it really is an unearthly landscape.
