Devil's Club in Winter
Oplopanax horridus

Bearing no leaves in winter, a devil's club thicket is a much less imposing task to navigate. When a patch such as this is in full leaf, it is almost impossible to get through it without snagging on some of the many thorns brandished by these plants.

Location: Near Indian River, Sitka, Alaska
