April 20, 2004
This image taken by the hazard-avoidance camera on the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on sol 99 shows the rock dubbed Route 66 and a flower-shaped brush mark made by the rover's rock abrasion tool. The image was taken after a four-day break for flight software updates and confirms that these updates were successful.
