Update and a few path corrections for the last few sols. We have a clear path to Ireson Hill now, if that is the plan.

Sol 1584, zig-zagging through the sandy patches, and now only 100 m from Ireson Hill.

We had s short drive, only 15 m or so, roughly south, to get to a tasty bit of rock. To the hill next time? We'll see.

Sol 1587, a drive to the south. Will we turn west and look at the hill?

It would appear from this smaller scale route map previously posted by centsworth: http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/images/?ImageID=6584 that the most constricted part of the clear route between the dunes lies just souh of Ireson Hill. However the details of the gap are obscured by the thickness of the projected route line there. It will be interesting to see how that area looks on your large scale route map Phil.

This new section of my overview map set shows the path ahead.

Thanks for posting that: it's exactly what I was hoping to see. The way through the dunes is indeed quite narrow when you consider their extent on either side.
