Into the Valleys: Curiosity NavCam panorama of Amargosa and Owens Valleys, sol 740 (September 5, 2014)
On sol 740, Curiosity picked her way carefully down a ramp into a series of valleys that contain some of the oldest rocks she had yet encountered. The patch of light-toned rocks in the middle distance, about 1/3 of the way from the left edge of the image, is an outcrop named Pahrump Hills.
