Oplopanax horridus

This plant lives up to its descriptive species name! It was very common on the Kenai Peninsula. It made hiking in the woods quite a challenge, along with the nettles and the Cow Parsnip, it has nasty thorns. We hiked in long pants despite the mid-80 to 90 degree "heat wave" in the area! The huge leaves were easy to spot, so we could avoid it fairly easily.
