“giant cone-shaped sandstone hill”
A giant cone-shaped sandstone hill scored with horizontal and vertical lines. The lines cross each other and kind of form the pattern of a huge checkerboard.
its a hill with lines carved in it from run off and layers of sediment. you can see it from the car.
Great spot to stop and take a walk up the Mesa.
Quite the geological wonder. You can see it from the car, but I highly recommend parking and getting up close to this incredible formation. You may even see some wildlife in the nearby washes (Big Horn sheep).
Be the first to add a review to the Checkerboard Mesa.
