Some soil has indeed stuck to the contact plate of APXS.

I'm crazy about these ultra-fine lattice-work details - the result of ages of wind erosion. It looks like the lightest touch would snap it off:

And... Oh yeah, that's where I left my Eiffel tower souvenir:

Those are beauties! There's been a lot of wonderfully whimsical wind-worn rocks of late!

Yes, Joe, that's the spot. Map update from me when I can get to it.

I would just like to say thank you Jan, for your prompt and technically well done 3D navcam anaglyph panoramas !

Especially for this one, which is one of the most scenic and dramatic stereo views I've ever seen from any surface mission on mars ....

I'm wondering if this is the spot where they will "do some science" (modulo a small bump here or there) or continue reconnoitering.

The various contact areas here seem to be masked by drifts in many places - it doesn't look as promising to me as it did in HiRISE images. I hope a good spot will turn up.
