Opportunity has begun the drive down the long descending southward slope of the rim crest here. The destination is a notch in the rim of Endeavour crater which is also the head of a small and ancient water-cut valley. There is a good view south along the rim from this location, although a dusty one.

Below is the latest update on progress of Perseverance and Ingenuity as they continue to explore the floor of Jezero Crater.
We have been busy traversing the floor of Jezero Crater and have collected several samples for eventual return to Earth as well as running the Ingenuity helicopter through its paces.. The geologic field mapping from the rover perspective has been challenging as the rocks are all very weathered and altered from being present during the very wet early history of Mars. Below are som summaries of important events
We will be doing at least one more sample on our way back past the landing site in the coming month. After that we will be exploring to the north as we make our way to the base of the delta. Stay tuned.
