There are a couple new views of the foothills on Mount Sharp from the Curiosity rover, and they are beautiful. Many layers, mesas and buttes are visible, reminiscent of the American southwest. Curiosity will keep getting closer in the weeks and months ahead. Image processing by Lars (@LarsTheWanderer).

  1. Thanks, Yu have a discerning eye! It is just way I pictured it from the recon photos. If she can negotiate some dicey bits in the foreground I think the path uphill will be easier on those wheels.

    Thanks agian. Exciting stuff.
