I've updated recent positions and added today's drive, sol 4716. Not much to go on, but taking the distance from Midnight Planets suggests this location.

Sol 4718, a 32 m drive and we are almost there. Next time we should be looking down the slope.

OK, we are looking down the slope a bit. But the curve of the slope still hides the main part of the valley.

Time to switch to a larger scale base map for the valley campaign.

"The valley campaign". Now there is an appropriate title for a new thread.

On the move... sol 4730 - we just moved north and east for a better view into the valley.

Apparently we drove 43 m south on sol 4734 - I will catch up with a big map update at the end of May as I am embarking on a big move.

Back in the saddle again - did i say saddle? I meant harness. (virtual Mars bar if you know where that's from)

So here is an update to the current photo location as of sol 4735.
