NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit took this image with its front hazard-avoidance camera on sol 187 (July 13, 2004). Spirit is currently at a location called "Engineering Flats," where it is has been undergoing a "tune-up." One of the goals for Spirit's time in the "shop" is to lubricate a sticky, right front wheel.
