As the vehicles climb a steep slope along the wall of Guayanilla Canyon, views like this from Seirios allow our pilots to see what is ahead and look out for any upcoming hazards. The secondary view from Seirios also gives our geologists a great sense of scale for their surroundings. From D2’s perspective, without Seirios, you would only be able to see a small portion of the feature.
