Black Dragon Canyon is located in the San Rafael Swell. The picture below is why it is called the Black Dragon Canyon. Who knows when or why, but the native people of this area drew images on the rocks, called pictographs, and also chipped them in the rock, called petroglyphs.
It was a short but beautiful hike into the canyon, even in the winter. We were able to get some great photos of the canyon and the artwork. We hope you’ll stop by and see what you can find.
