In winter the berg is brushed with a dusting of snow often foiling climber’s attempts to summit its peaks. At night local communities and hikers use fire for warmth and cooking, in the mornings mists rise to become the dragon’s smoke. Local folklore speaks of a Water Dragon that lives in Woodstock Dam, All hail Smoking Dragon!
