HiRISE view of the Gale Crater terrain between Dingo Gap and KMS-9 This view covers the terrain that Curiosity has to cover between its position at Dingo Gap (sol 528, January 30, 2014) and the future stopping point, KMS-9. The contrast of the HiRISE image has been strongly enhanced to emphasize subtle color variations.
