This is a gray base map of the skirt of Mount Sharp. In red is the rover's path since landing. Blue stars indication the major stops, Bradbury Landing, Darwin, Cooperstown, Kimberley and Pahrump Hills.
Curiosity's Route from Landing to 'Pahrump Hills'
Full Resolution
This image shows the planned route (in yellow) of NASA's Curiosity rover from "Pahrump Hills" at the base of Mount Sharp, through the "Murray Formation," and south to the hematite ridge further up the flank of Mount Sharp. The rover's location is near Pahrump Hills noted with a green star on the top right of the image.
Curiosity Rover Planned Route

This color image shows the transition between the "Murray Formation," and the hematite ridge, which is made up of continuous layers that can be traced laterally for hundreds of meters. Between both areas is a dark band of material, which are the dunes that divide Murray Ridge and Hematite Ridge.
Geological Transition
Full Resolution
This image shows distinct bands of alternating tone and brightness within the "Murray Formation" on Mars. A black arrow points to those bands, which cut across diagonally in this image.

This image shows a mesa (grayish) within the "Murray Buttes" area on Mars showing a complex fracture pattern (black arrow) protruding from the eroding rock.

This is a map of lower Mount Sharp on Mars, showing the major geologic units identified from orbit. In blue are dunes, crater floor is in gray, Hematite is in orange and the Murray formation is in green.
Geologic Layers of Mount Sharp
Full Resolution
This graphic shows the geologic cross-section through lower Mount Sharp on Mars. The crater floor is in gray. The Murray Formation in green and the Hematite Ridge is in orange.

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover used its Dust Removal Tool to brush aside reddish dust, revealing gray, less-oxidized rock material at a target called "Bonanza King," visible in this Aug. 17, 2014, image from the rover's Mastcam. The rover team is evaluating this rock as a possible drilling target.

View Down 'Hidden Valley' Ramp at 'Bonanza King' on Mars
Full Resolution
This image from NASA's Curiosity Mars rover looks down the ramp at the northeastern end of "Hidden Valley" and across the sandy-floored valley to lower slopes of Mount Sharp on the horizon.
