Sol 2695: Just a short drive / climb, but a very welcome one to get all 6 wheels off the slope and onto the top of the pediment smile.gif
Roughly stitched L-NavCam partial pan using MS-ICE with the available images. I'm sure the full 360 will be memorable...

BTW: maybe a good time for a new thread? (Traversing the Greenheugh Pediment?) smile.gif

Stunning, Sean. ohmy.gif

Re new thread: Yeah, possibly. That's Emily's call, though; she's been most carefully curating the journey of MSL here. smile.gif

I feel like Lawrence of Arabia fumbling for his binoculars after his guide Tafas shouts "Bedu" - WHERE?

Greenheugh pediment looks like its going to be a rough traverse for the rover. What does the pediment represent?

Not sure, but you might find this LPSC abstract interesting:

Originally the pediment was interpreted as an alluvial fan, sediment swept down Gediz Vallis by flowing water, but that's not the prevailing view at the moment.

Here's an abstract from 2019 showing in Fig. 4 a projection from the Greenheugh to the Stimson.

How do you pronounce "Greenheugh"? (Not evident for a French speaker.)
centsworth_II
Not evident for an English speaker either!

Everyone Iíve heard say it says Green Hue.

Here is Jan's sol 2698 panorama in circular form. It shows the rugged landscape quite well. This looks like wheel-busting terrain to me.

Hi folks, new rocks, new thread! Here's a link to the spot in the Route Map thread where Phil et al. documented this moment.
PaulH51
Partial end-of-drive R-Navcam pan from sol 2700 (Site/drive 79-588) hopefully to assist in pinpointing the location while we wait for the remaining frames.
The plan stated they were driving west looking for a drill site... This location appears to tick some of the drill site boxes smile.gif

Ant, are those images available for download? Am having some trouble figuring out how. Sorry.
Ant103
@tanjent : which images ? The panoramic ? If that's the case, just follow the link by clicking the picture, you would find a gallery with the image, and links bellow.

Edit : Sol 2700 Navcam panoramic.

This is caprock so it might be hard to drill. I hope we get one!

It would be nice to see them drill / sample one of those darker (capping) rocks, but because of the Feed Extended Drilling) they would need to find a really stable candidate...

However, the first potential drill site candidate appears to be in the lighter toned bedrocks seen in the arm workspace on sol 2700.
Attached is a mosaic of the L-MastCam images of that workspace, I believe the candidate is the Trapezoid shaped block in the upper right of the mosaic.

Looking towards the edge of the Greenheugh Pediment and some rather nice strata seen in this R-Mastcam partial pan from sol 2700, debayered in GIMP and stitched using MS-ICE, no additional processing, so apologies for the green hue as I can't find a way of removing it.

Edinburgh drill hole on sol 2711, judging by the HazCam images acquired during drilling and the tailings shown in this L-NavCam frame there should be a good chance of a viable sample in the sleeve smile.gif

Yes, the hole looks good!

Thank you for that nicely debayered and stitched pano of the sol2711 mastcam set. Its quite a view and am especially intrigued by highly eroded sections especially as seen in the snippet of the pano below, representing this pair of snapshots, looking closer a sinuous curve of apparent eroded pediment boundary appears sharply shadowed appearing in the exposure as if it were some sort of slack cable draped over the landscape. I keep losing my bearing as to where we are so have no idea if Curi is heading towards that particular area or onward elsewhere..

Another long distance ChemCam-RMI Mosaic, possibly a basal section of the Gediz Vallis Ridge a little closer to the rover?

Lovely work Damia, looking forward to seeing more of your excellent panoramas!

Meanwhile, another long distance RMI mosaic across the pediment, this time wider view (19 frames from sol 2719) It was roughly assembled in MS-ICE without additional processing.
