The Mars Rover Opportunity has arrived at Spirit Point on the edge of the Endeavour Crater. It has been a three year journey from Victoria crater, covering 12 kilometers.

Endeavour is 22 kilometers in diameter, and exposes much deeper and ancient Martian geology than anything explored so far.

Below is a closeup from the panorama showing the small crater “Odyssey” on the rim of Endeavour.
