I think there are a number of reasons to start a new thread. Squyres has confirmed we have turned east. We've passed the solstice and sunlight is now improving. Also we should be past the worst of the dunes now.

And, we've finally gotten new pics down! biggrin.gif And for the first time I can recall, the jpl site has beaten exploratorium! Here are the lookbacks after the 2252 and 2254 drives:

For those who don't know, the jpl site is one sol out of synch. You should add one sol to those numbers (2252 and 2254) to get the actual sols.

There was a new drive on sol 2256:

The maps shows it's just a short section of low dunes, then we're on linked pavements....
