Looks like water once onlapped those rocks. Did they have the equivalent of Martian "seeweed" growing on them?

Oppy has exited the crater proper. It will be travelling along the rim to the gully site.

Anomalously bright area up ahead. Hope they get some closeups of it.

Getting closer. Perhaps the bright area is ice, remnants of an exhumed glacier?

Note the dark coloration of the track on the upper left compared to the rest of track (but slightly greyish areas in the rest of the track as though forming a trail of dripped material).

Barsoomer,
I am looking at the very top of the picture. I can't tell if this is a different slab of ice/rock or the same one you have already pointed out. It is from Sol 4695.

The same one. It is called Winnemucca in the TPS report and it lies beyond the gully area (now called Perserverance Valley). Unfortunately, as we descend, it is drop out of view.

The path ahead.

A change in ISP ownership has broken my previous links. However, the files are still there, in the new area (as in the above link).

I think the joining channels up ahead lead to the gully, currently hidden behind the hill.

Note the greenish tinge. Cyanobacteria? Also, the smooth sand under the rock outcrop suggests some leakage there.
