Interesting, as I had interpreted that as the deliberate creation of a trench to provide something to study over the holiday period. But maybe it was an accident as you say. And maybe a spot of serendipity.

Some well defined imprints, not sure what that says about the texture of the soil. Extremely fine?

The bunkers are done, and once the fairways and greens are in, the real estate prices are going to rocket around here. smile.gif

Trouble getting up the hill, or just a spot of light excavation work?

QUOTE
Just before the holidays, the rover encountered some difficult, steep terrain. As the rover tried to advance up 20-degree slopes, the wheels began to dig up the soil and progress slowed to a near stop.

Sensing this, the rover stopped her drive and waited.

So, on Sol 4590 (Dec. 22, 2016), the team had Opportunity back down a short, 2-foot (70-cm) distance to put the rover on a more solid footing.

Before we could continue with rover activities through the holidays, Mars Odyssey went into "safe mode," an event that prevented relay data return from Opportunity. The rover was patient for several sols and in good health.

With Odyssey back, on Sol 4601 (January 2, 2017) Opportunity moved another 6.6 feet (2 meters) to get a good look of the terrain that was disturbed during the up-hill driving challenge.

The disturbed soil reveals brightly colored, unconsolidated material that is of great interest to the science team. So, the plan ahead is to use the rover's robotic arm instruments to investigate this bright soil.

Looks like another serendipitious discovery, just like Spirit at Silica Valley.
