Mars Science Labatory (MSL) or more commonly referred to as "Curiosity" has continued her trek along the surface of Gale Crater on Mars, as she continues en-route for climbing Mt. Sharp.

This is a 5 image composite panorama, captured by the color imaging system of the Narrow Angle Mastcam on Curiosity from Sol 1249 on February 10th, 2016. Upon close examination it shows curiosity is on a rise with a lower field with in the crater beyond. You can see the variation in the different geological structures found on the surface, from scrapes, gullies small rocks, and in the distance, the rising edge of the crater rim itself.
