Higher Up in the Hills

July 28, 2004
This image from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit is a view across the outcrop informally named Wooly Patch. It features an up-close look at the outcrop and highlights Spirit's location on sol 193 (July 19, 2004) higher up on the west side of the Columbia Hills. Seen in the distance is the south rim of Gusev Crater, and, from the right, the sea of basalt is visible lapping onto the Columbia Hills.
