In Mars there is only 38% of Earth's gravity

This morning Aster, Karon, and I set our sails towards Muddy Creek which is about 5 Km east of the Hab. The objective of the EVA was to find and follow north-east the elusive Cactus Road until we reach the river.

The total distance we traveled was about 17Km from which 4Km were on foot with a 627 ft elevation gain.
