It would be amazing to zoom in on the full size version of Sean's spectacular image and follow the whole route in it, as we could on his Gigapan image a while ago.

Meanwhile, a shortish drive on sol 2012 brings us south again.

Update to sol 2014. Curiosity moved SSE and to higher ground in an L-shaped drive of about 18m.

We moved down the slope to stop on the dark drifts on sol 2023. I think I need an enlargement of this area!

On sol 2030 we moved 12 or 15 m west (and a bit south) - this is only approximate until I see a full panorama.

I just have an approximate position and drive path for sol 2034 so this may be edited. I have added rough boundaries between the three members (stratigraphic subdivisions) of Vera Rubin Ridge. They are based on (and extrapolated from) boundaries shown on a poster by Kristen Bennett (Northern Arizona University) et al., shown at LPSC. The goal now seems to be to drill at one or more sites in each unit.
