     Here we have a low slope exposing thin layers.  This view closely
resembles the layered rocks overlying the light-colored mineral
deposits in the south-central section of the high resolution strip. 
It also closely resembles the layered deposits beneath the white
minerals in the North crater wall of Muara.


width of view:  0.75 miles

latitude:   41.426        longitude:   -119.972

 View was derived from Google Earth.
