This sol 128 navcam shot (http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/all/1/n/128/1N139562208EFF3031P1981R0M1.HTML) looks to show a big outcropping of bedrock above the crater rim.
-I suppose it could be an illusion, and there's a cliff hidden somewhere in the photo's middle ground.

I think that is the crater rim, or part of it. The near rim angles up and to the right and off the edge of the image, and then the far rim comes back in even higher up than the image.

Yeah. This red-blue anaglyph (http://www.lyle.org/mars/imagery/stereo/1-139562208-N.jpg) hints that if the rover would drive straight towards that feature, it would fall into the crater.

Yeah, I thought of that after I posted and did a little edit so as not to look utterly foolish when you all pointed out the bit about the crater itself being hidden somewhere in the middle ground. Oh well, it would've been nice.
