I think I can ...

Opportunity sent this sublime postcard from Solander Point, taken November 12, 2013. The rover is still functioning well, at 13+ years into the mision, about 38 times its design lifetime.  (source and description)

It is still climbing, looking for a good view of Endeavour crater's rim layering and morphology, and finding a comfortable slope to soak up sun during the coming winter. (source and description)

Here's a composite pic of Burns Cliff, in Endurance Crater, back in November 2004. (original composite and description, with stretched colors)
