And another drive on Sol 2439

Here is a few of the L-NavCams from the drive assembled into a GIF, looks like it might have been a drive up to the ridge smile.gif

Cosmic ray hit, probably. No hint of anything at that location in the frames just before and after that one.

The stitching may be ugly on this Sol 2439 L-NavCam partial pan, but the vista from the top of the ridge makes up for it.

As usual MS-ICE butchered the stitching, but hopefully it will inspire someone to do a better job.

Joe Knapp's page puts the roll/pitch at +15°/+17° which must be up there on the leader board for a combined total smile.gif

A circular version of Jan's panorama shows us perched nicely on the ridge. This should be OK for contact science (APXS) but not drilling on a slope like this.

Very nice indeed Charbob. It may be simply an artifact of the viewing angle combined with preferential erosion, but it looks like some low angle cross bedding there.

I don't think it is a clast Paul, but what would I know. Heck, I can't even decide whether this little fella is a clast or a blow in.
