Opportunity seen from HiRISE on sol 3361 (July 8, 2013)
I could just show you Opportunity but they did a great job of framing the image so that the skinny color strip at the middle of the HiRISE camera detector covered all of the rim of Endeavour that Opportunity has explored so far, plus the bit that she's about to explore. So, behold: Endeavour's rim! You may want to compare this to a few-week-old route map posted by Eduardo Tesheiner at unmannedspaceflight.com to locate the named landmarks. You'll need to look at a more recent route map to see Opportunity's sol 3361 position. We're all a bit confused why Opportunity suddenly took a left turn on sol 3366!

HiRISE view of Opportunity, sol 3361
HiRISE captured this photo of Opportunity on the rover's sol 3361, July 8, 2013. At the time, the rover was taking advantage of summer sunlight to drive southward along the rim of Endeavour crater from Cape York (at the top of the photo), past Sutherland Point and Nobby's Head (at the center of the photo), toward Solander Point (at the bottom). Opportunity is just past halfway from Nobby's Head to the northern tip of Solander Point.
