Checkboard Mesa, Zion NP, Utah

The reason for Checkerboard Mesa's name seems pretty clear to me. Again, I am fascinated by what geology might have created these sort of cross-hatchings.  My guess is that the horizontal came first, as part of formation and abrasion, and the then vertical lines came later from water erosion.
