    I live in PA now, but miss the West mightily.

    One time I was crossing a log above a big ditch, and fell right into a huge patch of devil's club!  Owowowow!

    Thanks for the refresher!

      about Devil's Club, I wondered whether it was a satanic cult, as in, "Let's go to the woods and check out the devil's club."

      Actually, I did know, because the eastern states have devil's walkingstick, a plant with a similarly wicked stem.

    •  I haven't though of Devil's Club in years. (3+ / 0-)

      Got hung up in a patch below a scree slope back in my ranger days at Mt. Rainier.  

      Gotta love a plant named after good old, Baelzebul.

      Now my bane is multiflora rose.  Fell off the wood wagon last fall right into a monster-sized bush.

      They ought to plant that stuff around prisons - its about as wicked as razor wire.
