And we're not lost! The long and thin outcrop in front of us on Doug's pan is clearly visible on the MGS map.

And between that next outcrop area and Beagle is a large dark cobble area, which would be a good spot to visit and look around. The sand looks a bit fluffy south of that light outcrop so Oppy may need a slight detour.

Ever closer!

Here's my take on Oppy's arrival at Beagle, more than obviously influenced by my bet... rolleyes.gif

I can hardly wait for Tesheiner to make one last "white square" move on his Route Map... smile.gif
It's so un-cool for exploratorium to "be Down" during these approach drive days... sad.gif

Bill, I cannot see a loose sand by viewing the MOC pictures. How do you spot it? By the light albedo of surface at south soon after next small outcrop?

Like all those outcrops on the far rim of VC. I think the original beacon that we saw through the gap many sols ago would be about the middle of that cluster beside the current beacon. Obviously we are climbing higher and seeing more of the far rim over the rest of the near wall. wink.gif

Based on pancams from sol 864, the distance to the center of next outcrop on the path is about 29m; I used that figure to refine last positions on the route map.

It was already time to shift the map and finally see VC; it's BIG.

That's a new milestone! (but before others notice it, please correct your red labbeling on VC's near rim: it's NOT the Beacon)

Isn't it amazing - we are so close to Victoria Crater now, almost the range of Eagle to Endurance....but we can essentially see NOTHING of it.

So very true. Our beloved Vicky is an old, old crone. Worn flat over however many millions of years; her once upright, sprightly rim eroded back into crenulations and undermined until it sags down into her nether regions. So we can't even see the immediate near rim ( with the possible exception of the Beacon slab). Rim depressions like the Boat Ramp are below our sight horizon.
An old lady, but one who might tell us some secrets about Mars' past, long before her flaming youth.
