Opportunity to explore

It seems that Opportunity has landed in a more interesting looking location than previous missions which seem to land on fairly flat deserts with a uniform covering of rocks. This landing site looks like it has some interesting bouldering problems on some rocky outcrops. Hopefully the terrain doesn't get steeper than 30 degrees otherwise the rover could stop due to its hazard detection system.
