Hi my name is Matt Heverly.
I'm a rover driver and this is your Curiosity Rover Report.
The rover recently drove over a sand dune we called 'Dingo Gap.'
This is in order to get to an area on the other side known as 'Moonlight Valley.'
This area has much gentler terrain with fewer sharp rocks.
The rate of ware of the wheels has increased over the last few hundred meters.
