Checking in with Curiosity

I happened to notice this image somewhere in the last couple of days.  It's from the plugging-along-intrepidly Mars Curiosity rover.   And it recently encountered a field of "megaripples" on the slopes of Mount Sharp.   So I went to the Curiosity Web site and found the article about the encounter.

Here's the update:  March to the Megaripples

And the accompanying picture:

While looking around, I found this fantastic panorama, which includes the Bagnold Dunes area.
