Spirit took this panoramic camera image of its wheel tracks on sol 122 (May 7, 2004). This short segment of track represents only a small portion of the long journey Spirit has traveled toward the base of the "Columbia Hills," which still loom approximately 1.7 kilometers (1 mile) away. The tracks will be only a temporary scar on this martian landscape, as winds will eventually wipe them away.
