Tracks of a Climb on Opportunity's Sol 3485
Tracks of a Climb on Opportunity's Sol 3485
After driving uphill about 139 feet (42.5 meters) during the 3,485th Martian day, or sol, of its work on Mars (Nov. 12, 2013), NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity captured this image with its navigation camera. The climb ascended "Murray Ridge" above "Solander Point" on the western rim of Endeavour Crater.

The view is toward the north-northeast. The distance between the two parallel tracks is about 3.3 feet (1 meter). This sol's drive brought Opportunity's cumulative driving distance to 24.01 miles (38.64 kilometers).
