HiRISE: Before Jezero

ESP_055036_1655Before Jezero. Before Jezero Crater was selected as the landing site for the Mars 2020 mission, this area in Gusev Crater was in the running. The terrain here is very different from nearby Columbia Hills (location of the Spirit rover), and is littered with small, light-toned plateaus and hills.
