Spirit has topped Husband Hill and has a good view to the east. They may still move around a bit to try and get the best angles for a panorama.

Thanks Burmese,

These are some great shots. I was especially interested in the ones that looked like the rocks had been sand blasted. That might tell us a little bit about the composition and formation of these rocks.

So, where to now, Spirit of Mars? Look out for the sand traps.

Steve Squyres and others have all indicated that the 'Home Plate' feature to the south is a primry destination after Spirit is through looking around from the top of the hill.
