Near 'Endurance' on Sol 115

This anomaly was first brought to our attention by Echtelion, a member of ATS, where there is a discussion thread on this image.

This cylindrical-projection view combines several frames from the navigation camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity. The rover acquired these frames during its 115th martian day, or "sol," in the Meridiani Planum region of Mars, on May 21, 2004. The rover was near the edge of "Endurance Crater," which dominates the right half of this view. The crater is about 130 meters (about 430 feet) in diameter.

Naturally it is possible that NASA is correct in calling this one a "rock", but then NASA calls all anomalies rocks. In either case this object is in a field of sedimentary rock that shows the "Blue Berries" and it looks out of place whether it is a beam of wood or a rock.

It is certainly interesting to look at... The 'wooden beam' taken from the above panorama was taken on Sol 115 by Opportunity's Navication Camera. The beam appears in four images in the set... We have added them below

I was about to take a look at the log, until I noticed something else that I thought was a bit strange. When you look a bit above the "log" you see two, what apear to be, allmost perfect squares laying side by side. Or am I "seeing" things?

Here are the images I am talking about:

Perhaps the "Beam" is left over from building the "Fortress" that is on the opposite rim?  From this distant view you can make out a level field with what appear to be numerous buildings or structures of some kind...

Further to the right is another similar area, with some really interesting looking structures...

Now this one just doesn't look like it belongs in the picture. The 'Wood Pile" shows up in two images
