Caption: Sedimentary rock. Checkerboard Mesa sandstone rock formation, showing cross-bedding. This sedimentary rock was formed by the deposition of successive layers of sediment carried in water or air currents, later compressed into rock. The cross- bedding (thick horizontal lines) was produced by changes in the direction of the depository currents over time. Photographed in the Zion National Park, Utah, USA.
