Narrative

A range of low hills characterized by outcroppings of reddish granite in chocolate brown dolerite, situated between Flagship Mountain and Mount Davidson in Convoy Range, Victoria Land. The hills were visited and named by the VUWAE, 1976-77, led by Christopher J. Burgess. Named in association with Mars Hills and from their coloration, reminiscent of the color images of Mars obtained by the U.S. NASA planetary probes Viking I and Viking II that landed on Mars in July and September of 1976.
