Drive-direction panorama toward Kylie, curiosity sol 550 On sol 550, Curiosity paused at a saddle between two valleys to look at the route ahead. On the left, in the middle ground, is the layered terrain of Kylie. Curiosity drove through the valley to the right of Kylie, stopping only briefly to take photos before continuing south.
