  • If you're just driving into our out of Zion stop off here to take the place in. Quite a unique sight.  more »
  • I have seen photos of this mesa before, but they did not do it justice. The patterns and light play make a great visual display.  more »
  • If you coming, so choose the eastern entrance of Bryce Canyon to the Park, then you come over to this rock formation – here the nature has left a particular pattern in the rock formations. Just make rest and beautiful photos.

  • We entered the Park from the east. The Checkerboard Mesa got our attention first. I have to admit, it is a one-of-a-kind. All the colorful sandstone rock formations kept me busy with intense interest. I am glad we saw this before the big stuff or we might not have spent time there.
  • Fascinating work of nature on stone. Here is a view of the south end of Checkerboard Mesa.
  • Amazing. An awe inspiring formation.
  • These white, square shaped mountains are definitely worth a view.
  • When Walt Disney built this park, he should have made the formations a bit more realistic. Sad!
