I noticed some dents and dings in the wheels... seems a bit soon for them to be showing wear doesn't it? The pix are awesome! Thanks for sharing.

I still find it crazy I'm looking at pictures of Mars...

For centuries we've looked at it in the sky.. In to finally be so close.

A far better source for Curiosity images is here: http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/raw/

All of the raw images from all of Curiosity's cameras are uploaded here before they are processed.

After you said that I went looking and see what you're talking about. One thing that came to mind is Curiosity is much much heavier than previous rovers, such as Spirit and Opportunity. So the Martian gravity is taking its toll as the rover rolls over jagged rocks and gravel.
