Panoramic view of Clovis outcrop with Gusev basin behind, sol 210
Filed under pretty pictures, Mars, Mars Exploration Rovers, Spirit
Spirit spent her first Martian winter studying rocks near the summit of the "West Spur" on the flank of the Columbia hills. The outcrop in the foreground is Clovis. In the background is the floor of Gusev crater, where Spirit landed. The relatively clear air permits a view of the lumpy distant rim of Gusev.
