Perseverance Valley

Perseverance Valley
Perseverance Valley Opportunity used her Pancam to take a number of raw pictures of her view into Perseverance Valley in May 2017 that Seán Doran, an artistic director, processed into this image. From here, the rover drove straight ahead and into the valley to explore it from top to bottom. Could the winds sweeping up and out of the crater over the millennia have smoothed and shaped this valley into its current morphology?
