I didn't want to make a whole new thread about this, but to me, now comes a very obvious question:

Which outcrop shows the deepest stratigraphy in this crater?

It's a little early, but outside of Frio (P4) and Verde(A1) and B2(not yet imaged?) there's also the puny wall that is at the base of F2 that could be wall or vertical slump block next to the larger slump block.

What wonderful outcrops and active erosional features. I'm all a'quiver with the first views of the Victoria rim and capes and bays. Looking at the surface of Duck Bay it does look passable for an initial toe-dip. I'm almost giddy in anticipation over the first L257's we'll be getting in the next couple of Sols.

The surface of the bay may be navigable, but getting over the dune along the edge might be tricky, at least where the rover currently is parked. It looks to be shorter as one goes to the right along the edge of the bay towards the cape and is potentially navigable there. It is interesting how the dune bridges a gully extending up from the bay. Being near the center of the bay, I would guess the prevailing winds make the dune highest near where Oppy is parked and lower as one goes toward either cape.

OMG! No, I didn't see those... but I can now... now it looks even more like the nickname I gave it, "Gargoyle Tower" ohmy.gif

Karl, I think that "gully" is actually a crater just outside of the rim. The official jpl release called it "Duck Crater".

Just to clarify things a bit amidst this mad flurry of images, the pancams we had down today are actually from the sol 951 location. Some were taken sol 951, some sol 952 before the bump up towards the rim.

These new stunning pictures from Mars are so stimulating... biggrin.gif
After dedusting of PTGui I tried to bring additionally a bit more light on the cliff (indeed Michael brought it already).

Man oh man, I was just going gaga over the latest images on the old thread and then I discover this! I thought I was going to fall off my seat looking down at the floor of the crater wink.gif To me, this is the first image that instantaneously gives a sense of how big/deep Victoria is.

Thanks Indian3000!!..............any chance of getting the corresponding right image as well for an all out stereo plunge into the crater??
