Driving down the valley

Driving down the valley
Driving down the valley Opportunity took this shadow selfie in mid-August 2017, as she drove farther into Perseverance Valley. In the lower right had portion of this image you can see the “rough” asphalt-like terrain the rover has been encountering and at times sliding across. Near the top, on the horizon you can see Endeavour Crater’s rim on the far side. Stuart Atkinson processed this from the raw images the robot sent home. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Cornell / ASU / S.
