Utah - Fall, 2001
Zion National Park - CheckerBoard Rock


Checkerboard Mesa.

"The "checkers" or "biscuits" that groove its surface are formed by the weathering of horizontal bedding planes and vertical cracks."


Close up view.

Wavy rocks at a road side stop.

Textures of the rocks... very interesting

ditto!
