1686-navcamSol 1686, May 4, 2017. Curiosity’s drive toward Vera Rubin Ridge is encountering locations where sand has collected into large ripples. Here we see that the rover rolled a foot or two onto a ripple then rolled back, perhaps as rover drivers tested the sand’s trafficability. Click image to enlarge it.
