Sol 1269-1271 - Arriving at Naukluft Plateau
Curiosity NavCam mosaic taken on Sols 1269 and 1271 showing its surroundings after a drive on Sol 1269. High Dune, where Curiosity took part in a long campaign to study Martian dune dynamics, is visible just below Mt. Sharp.
The Naukluft Plateau, which exposes a contact between fossil sand dunes of the Stimson formation and the underlying lake muds of the Murray formation, is visible at right.
