The north edge of Kimberley, Curiosity sol 580 While parked about 4 meters from the north edge of Kimberley, Curiosity took almost 250 images of the outcrop with the higher-resolution Mastcam. The rock layers are tilted gently away from the rover. In places, windblown sand has piled up against the rock. Small cascades of loose material disturb the drifted sand in places.
