Hm, this time it shouldn't be too difficult(?)
Some more (50 or so) meters west,
then finally turning south again,
driving around Helgas Dune. wheel.gif
This would bring us back on this track.
Maybe?

This update to sol 1310 (estimated location) also includes some corrections to recent parts of the path and extends the base to the west. The fractures mentioned in the USGS blog are presumably the raised features forming a rough grid at the northwest corner of today's map. They would be fractures filled with something harder than the surrounding rock, which has resisted erosion.

Just for fun, here is a 3D version of the recent route map, based on Phil's mapping. Wider view covering more terrain available here.

The larger map seems to have left and right reversed. The Murray Buttes show up as depressions. If I turn my red/blue glasses upside down it all makes sense.

Agreed. And the individual L/R links are dead:

Excellent 3D map! The twists and turns now make sense to me. Curiosity trully has "outwordly" class drivers!
Update to sol 1310 plus provisional to sol 1311 (I think Curiosity's track can be seen very close to the edge).

Nearly back to the 1309 position today, apparently for drilling, so presumably the CHIMRA problem has been fixed.

This shows our new (1329) position, fairly accurately, I think, but I don't know the details of the path to it yet.
