Full-Circle Vista from NASA Mars Rover Curiosity Shows ‘Murray Buttes’
“Eroded mesas and buttes reminiscent of the U.S. Southwest shape part of the horizon in the latest 360-degree color panorama from NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover.”
Keith’s note: This is why we call Devon Island “Mars On Earth”. Top: Mars 2016 Bottom: me on Devon Island 2002. I have been to Devon Island 3 times – twice for a month. Without exception, a day did not go by when my eyes were telling me that I was on Mars every hour or so.

    Keith- thanks for the walk down memory lane. Many of us followed your trips to “Mars” with keen interest, all the while wishing we were there. More or less 🙂

    All that Mars picture needs is a stagecoach…

    I have pictures of the same location with skies that look very martian.
