Summary: Today’s EVA was focused on collecting the rock samples from the cattle grid and motherload of concretions. The sky was clear and the temperature was around 17 deg C as we started for the EVA . Along the water channel, we found some interesting rock samples which must have been transported from the nearby region. We have collected and marked the locations and moved on to the second location, which was cattle grid, in search of igneous rocks and volcanic ash. We found some basalts, but no volcanic ash. The conglomerates and gritstones were yellow, brown, reddish with colorful embedded grains in them.
