The checkerboard mesa was interesting. There is a pull off area to see the way the checkerboard is formed into the mountain. Very interesting.

Remarkable viewpoint to the east of the Tunnel. It's a tough climb that despite appearences definitely needs a rope and gear as it steepens towards the top.

We then found some side canyons away frm the carpark where again it was very easy to get away from other tourists.

Nice to see but there are many places in park to see the same thing. I didn't like the parking area.

Checkerboard Mesa is cool and it really is the first famous spectacle you see when you enter the park from the east entrance

This has to be seen to be believed. A spectacular rock formation in an altogether amazing setting. It is well worth stopping on the way into Zion as the landscape on the other side of the pass is totally different!
