The Indian Blanket pictograph is 16 feet wide and 4 feet high.

The legend says that many years ago a group of Paiute Indians passed through Clear Creek Canyon on the way to their winter camping area. While they were in the canyon, a recently born baby of a young woman died and was buried near here. During the winter, the mother was troubled by the thought of her baby being alone in the cold. The following spring she returned to the burial site. Nearby, she painted a blanket on a rock face so the baby could use the blanket to keep warm during cold winters at this lonely place.
