The misty peak of Bonestrewn Crest

Bonestrewn Crest is a mountaintop dragon lair located south of Windhelm.

It is riddled with mammoth bones, hence the name "Bonestrewn". It has a blueish mist, and a number of dragon's tongue plants grow here. It can be accessed via a slope on the south side. At the top of the hill, you can find a word wall which teaches part of the Frost Breath shout, as well as a single chest north of the wall. If you have not completed Dragon Rising, there will be three skeletons here instead of a dragon.
