Opportunity drove back towards Pompy's Tower on sol 4556, as shown approximately here. When we have more images I may get a better position.

Following up on the gully target coming up in a few months...
Here is the gully from a slightly different perspective (90 rotation makes it look scary steep!)

A wider take on the route map -- I finally finished doing for Opportunity what I did for Curiosity a while ago, organizing the collection of HiRISE images covering the traverse.

Very nice, Emily.

Here is an update to sol 4559, driving past Pompy's Tower.

PS Watch this space for a big route map announcement coming soon. Fear not, it's a good announcement, if I can get it to work.

Sol 4566, a nice drive about 17 m SSE - the location is only approximate until I see more images.

Another drive on sol 4568 - moving below the third mound in this area. Very soon it will be possible to drive up the hill between it and the big ridge to the south.

Sol 4570 - and we are going round the bend. So to speak. Turning towards the uphill path. My placename 'SW Ridge' is an imaging target from the time at Spirit Mound, but I'm not sure it is really in the right place.

Another drive uphill on sol 4577, a bit over 11 m.

PS I think the name SW Ridge fits better where I have it now, looking back at when it was used. But if anyone can correct me...

A 15 m drive on sol 4580, taking us up the valley. I might be a few metres NW of our actual location, need more images to check it. Also a feature name, Elwood - I don't yet know what it refers to.

Another drive on sol 4582 (plus a correction to the previous drive). Time for a new map base.

Another drive uphill on sol 4584, just fitting on to this map before I change the base. I made several small corrections to match the latest map on the MER website.

This is just a bit of a wider view of the current area, showing also the route shown in the extended mission plan (white line).

Another 30 m on sol 4586, getting up to some nice outcrops of brighter material. There's a rocky bluff just above us, so do we go to the left or right of it? Right is straight up the hill, pretty steep, maybe too steep at one particular spot. Left is south, across a field of small blocks which is probably a recent rockfall deposit, but not as blocky as the one below SW Ridge.
