Some images from back on Sol 1686 came down, and it's a nice view (QuickTime, 3MB) - very appropriate for the "Goodbye Victoria" thread, since Victoria is just an elevated horizon to the northeast. Some light-colored exposed rock is visible in the distance to the southwest - that's about where Opportunity is today, on Sol 1694, or actually just past midnight on 1695.

Wow.

I did a quick Pancam anaglyph mosaic. It's not very good but it's all I have time for.

Okay, and a quick Sol 1695 QuickTime VR, looking south.

These drifts don't look so tough. Except maybe that one to the left. Looking forward to seeing our position on the map...

Hmm. A new drunken sailor technique or something else interesting. Unusual half frame look at the rear wheels.

BTW - Is it time to start a new thread for this journey? Victoria is now 'far' behind. 'The Road to Endeavour: Leg One' perhaps. Tesh, Rui?

I clearly don't understand how the driving on these drifts works. We drove right over some that I would have avoided. I hope the rest of the journey goes like this.

I'd like to see the marks in a navcam image. It appeared more like a dance to me than a drunken stumble, but I can't quite name the dance step.

It's the Yo-Ho Yo-Ho dance (see my earlier message)...
