I'm really pushing the resolution on this orbital view

Boy, I think you're off here. That light patch that shows up in the SOL 316 picture is very close up. Were it the same one in the distant color pan shot, it would be huge and those rocks you point out wouldn't even be seen they're so small. My guess is that you're right up through around 305 or 306 but then the rover starts climbing to the East. I doubt you can even see the area it's in right now from that distant pan. But who knows? I could be very wrong. It's why we desperately need an overhead route map drawn by the engineers driving the rover.

azstrummer, this is as close as you can get. Trust me. I also think alan is a bit off there. The rover is still on the north side of the ridge which is connecting the West Spur with Husband Hill.

That makes much more sense. In this pancam shot from Sol 315, the two "notches" on the hill ahead are clearly visible and if Spirit had gone north, the perspective would've been much different.

JPL included headings in the navcam panorama for sol 313 so I did some triangulation.
This is what I came up with

Hmmmm... no drive again today, perhaps those wheel problems have become a bit more serious.

Maybe..., but I think Spirit was still in the '5 day Thanksgiving weekend'. We'll see.

A week off for Spirit, should have the battery fully charged. How about a 100 meter drive.?

There's very little new data coming down too. Just the usual images of the pancam calibration target and the Sun.

I am still hoping for a pan from in between the hills, even if it is a Navcam pan, although I would prefer a Pancam pan. It is too bad that while the rover is parked they don't take advantage of such opportunities for a good color pan. This could be achieved through tri-color imaging and perhaps 2x2 or even 4x4 binning in 2 of the colors, or perhaps all three with a full resolution clear-filter data set. I realize this would be of little scientific use, but it would be great for future coffee table books.

For the last 5 days MER site has posted 58 shots of the sundial and 18 of the sun. Are there images of something interesting to go with these waiting to transmitted?

I get the impression that they may be starting to climb slightly.
