Mount Sharp from Vera Rubin Ridge
Suitable for desktop wallpaper, a segment from a 360-degree panorama taken by Curiosity on sol 1903 (December 13, 2017). The hills look impassable in this direction, which is one reason Curiosity will be driving significantly toward the left (east) before descending Vera Rubin Ridge, crossing the clay-rich area behind it, and ascending the sulfur-rich lower layers of the mountain.
