Curiosity route map from landing through Dingo Gap with quad names, sol 527
This map shows the route that Curiosity rover drove from landing through sol 524 (Jan. 26, 2014). The rover is approaching a gap between two low scarps, "Dingo Gap." Team members are assessing whether to use that gap, or a nearby path, to reach a possible route southwestward over smoother ground than expected over an alternative route. The map indicates waypoints "Darwin" and "Cooperstown," where researchers used instruments on Curiosity to examine local outcrops. Another potential waypoint candidate is "KMS-9" on the rover's way toward its long-term science destination on the lower slopes of Mount Sharp.

You can actually see the rock "Jake Matijevic" in the HiRISE image if you click to enlarge; it is just to the right of the label for the sol 43 drive.
