Description (see definition): A névé of about 25 square miles in the Hays Mountains, bounded by Mount Griffith, Mount Pulitzer, Taylor Ridge, and Vaughan Glacier. The feature was mapped by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) from surveys and U.S. Navy (USN) aerial photographs, 1960-64. During November 1987, the névé was the camp site of the U.S. Antarctic Research Program (USARP) - Arizona State University geological party, which suggested the name. This name was approved in ACAN 346, June 20, 1988. The name derives from the setting, surrounded by peaks, and from the appearance of Mount Pulitzer, the profile of which is remindful of a dragon.
