Curiosity: Dunes, rocks, and veins in Artist’s Drive

942-AD-navcam3Sol 942, April 1, 2015. Despite dunes and rocks, the Navcam shows a generally trafficable path down Artist’s Drive. This will be the onward route for Curiosity once it finishes up at Garden City and Kanosh. On the right-hand wall, note the slabby rocks with light mineral veins rising out of the dirt, perhaps created the same way as at Garden City. The foreground in this composite image lies closer to the rover than the scene here, which was taken with the Mastcam. (Click the image to load a larger version in a new tab.)
