Mahonia fremontii, Fremont's barberry, Molen Reef, Utah
This image was photographed in the Molen Reef region in the western San Rafael Swell. The Molen Reef is a culturally-rich landscape with numerous rock art sites, lithic landscapes, and places of habitation. It is also an important resource for rare plants, paleontology, history, and geology. This area has been at risk for energy development consistently over the last four years.
