A long distance 10 frame ChemCam-RMI mosaic of what I believe is a face of Gediz Vallis Ridge, images acquired on sol 2715. Roughly assembled in MS-ICE and annotated, but otherwise unprocessed.

Another long distance ChemCam-RMI Mosaic, possibly a basal section of the Gediz Vallis Ridge a little closer to the rover?
Once again from sol 2715, roughly assembled in MS-ICE without additional processing

Lovely work Damia, looking forward to seeing more of your excellent panoramas!

Meanwhile, another long distance RMI mosaic across the pediment, this time wider view (19 frames from sol 2719) It was roughly assembled in MS-ICE without additional processing.

Indeed a very lovely view, the composition gives a feeling almost of a Martian sort of tropical, taking in a relatively balmy afternoon as wavelets of sand gently lap up against the near shore and relax sipping a perchlorate cocktail under the instrument cluster standing in as mock parasol, take a glance over near to the right a bit into the distance many barchan dune islands poke above the surface as the seas of sand grow rougher dissappearing into the murky distance, in splendid isolation I will be to remain here for some while..

Yet another long range ChemCam RMI mosaic checking the distant terrain, this one appears to focus on the hills beyond the Greenheugh Pediment. Images from Sol 2725, composed of 12 frames assembled in MS-ICE without further processing. Note, there appears to be 14 images in this sequence, but one processed frame has not made it to the server as of the time of this post.

I may be a tad bidirectionally challenged, but isn't that the marker bed?

I'm not sure, but I'm guessing you are referring to the 'marker bed' described in this? link

Here's where I think the terrain is, I've added a box to a mosaic assemble by Neville Thomson showing the other long range RMIs from atop the pediment link

Edit: We now have the mission update that covers this sol:

On the second sol Curiosity will take a ChemCam long distance RMI mosaic of the pediment capping unit to assess the stratigraphy and sedimentary structures exposed on the flank of Gediz Vallis.

...especially intrigued by highly eroded sections especially as seen in the snippet of the pano below, representingt... looking closer a sinuous curve of apparent eroded pediment boundary appears sharply shadowed appearing in the exposure as if it were some sort of slack cable draped over the landscape. I keep losing my bearing as to where we are so have no idea if Curi is heading towards that particular area or onward elsewhere..

Here's a little more detail in this telephoto ChemCam-RMI from Sol 2726, roughly assembled in MS-ICE, some data drop out in one frame. No additional processing except the stitch and adding the text.
