Today's Chemcams (messy ICE stitch below) correspond to a small section at center PaulH51's treatment of that interesting outcrop (a portion of which is hijacked below for context)..

Raindrop casts would be cool, but I'm betting on concretions/groundwater cementation. Consider this terrestrial example:

concretionary sandstone

As dburt notes, probably concretions. The reasons I queried rip up clasts were the number of non spherical clasts, which is not common for concretions and the "jumbled" appearance of the matrix which could represent a sediment rich flow or slurry off Mount Sharp.

Thanks, Jan. Here is a circular view of your panorama. It seems a long time that we have been crossing this landscape of scattered blocks, but soon I think the landscape is going to look very different.

It would sure be great if one every week or two they added 8 images above the current Navcam set so we could see where we are going smile.gif

That's called doing an Upper Tier.....we try to convince the science team to let us (ECAM) do it quite often....but realistically we only get to do it when they need it for targeting other imaging. Fear not.... first stop on the VRR imaging campaign is coming up in a few more drives and we'll be doing one then.

(Edit... as if by MAGIC... https://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/ra...88M_&s=1726 )

Well that Upper Tier was nicely timed smile.gif The VRR is a thing of beauty...
