“The route follows Black Dragon Canyon to an excellent pictograph wall with the famous "Dragon" pictograph.”— John Maurizi
High on the wall to the left there are several alien and ghostly figures. It is a difficult run up on loose terrain. Once you reach the figures, make your way slightly right and you'll find the "dragon." The white chalk outlining the art is not original to the art. It was placed there in the 1920's as that was the practice. This is no longer done and it is illegal to write or deface the wall in any way.
