It is looking likey that Opportunity is going to take a westerly route around the large ripple patch ahead of her. Taking this path will take here off the edge of my previous 'ripple maps', however a more resent HiRISE image covers a bit more of this area. Here is a 'ripple map' of this image; Opportunity is just currently north of the big red patch (indicating large rover trapping ripples) left of centre.

I have to admit I don't really see the advantage of going that way myself, it is lot further and without any obvious paths through to my eye. I'm very interested in hearing what the pros have spotted.
If I had to guess I would suggest that the path would follow the bedrock as shown in this overlay of the ripple map and the raw image.
