The Husband Hill Summit Panorama, Spirit sols 583-586 This triumphant panorama is the culmination of Spirit's arduous ascension of Husband Hill, the tallest of the Columbia hills. It represents Spirit's first view down into the "Inner Basin" and Home Plate, where the rover would spend the rest of its mission. The rover deck appears pristine; strong winds at the hill's peak had swept the rover's deck clean. Photos for this panorama were taken August 24-27, 2005.
