It was already said that those structures seen on previous hazcam pics (well, in all sort of cameras and filters...) were delicate.

But what about these ones? It looks like the smallest touch could broke them.

Good idea. That topic was "tired" and had the cord showing. smile.gif biggrin.gif tongue.gif

Delicate, to be sure. One thing I've noticed is that the "ledge-forming" rocks are a layer and extend to the right and left of where we camped out. I wonder if that feature is related to the bluff at Mogollon Rim?

We need to check out the "mobile dust" at that site and see if there has been more movement during the stopover.

Does it look like there was any piled deposition of dust to the right of where the rover wheels were parked for so long?

I realize there are several explanations for this, one of which that I am imagining it all, or it could just be an effect from driving disturbing the soil, and I don't even know if this would map to the right wind direction.

It might be evidence of some movement by wind, nonetheless.

EDIT - Original pic here.

Ed, it may very well be that sand has piled up n the wiindward side of the right wheel. AFAIK, the prevailing wind direction seems to be coming more or less from the right, so it is possible. It could be that soil has been displaced, let's look at earlier and other images of that spot.

Well, that pretty much confirms that more MIs of the crossbedding are planned. I think we were warned that they were going to look over this exposure in detail. I am really anxious to get to Mogollon, but it would be pretty nice to get a big MI mosaic of that nifty stuff over Lower Overgaard. wink.gif

Me too, this is a good opportunity to study x-bedding. We'll just have to sit here and fidget...

Alan,
The codes above are 'Greek' to me, but I would be shocked and bewildered if Oppy moved more than half a meter over the next week. After spending (wasting? unsure.gif ) a week MIing a slab without obvious festoon bedding, they have yet to map the slab that does have it (maybe). Anyway, they're still having trouble with Oppy's arm joints, so I fear we are going to be stuck here for a while yet. sad.gif

O.K. Oppy just stretched, boogied a little, and did a quick pan (deja vu ), just to keep in practice. There's life in the old girl yet! cool.gif

The last images are down and here is the 360 degree panoramic view around Erebus.
