you can see the mesa from the car, but take a moment to stop and get up close to the land! seeing, touching, and exploring is a fun way to pass some time :)

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).
