Opportunity heads to Endurance

After last Monday’s announcement that Opportunity will be heading southeast towards “Endurance” crater, I learned that this new target is clearly distinguishable using Google Mars.  Using a combination of this landing orbit image (for scale and clear layout of neighborhood craters), and this labeled image (for crater identification), I came up with this labeled screen shot (here’s the interactive link on Google Mars).  The green color on this map represents elevation:
