Found in Millcreek Canyon, outside of SLC, picked up with stick to move out of road and it climbed on and then spun a web to get off. Abdomen about the size of an adult thumbnail or spider about the size of a black widow

She’s a lovely Shamrock Orbweaver, Araneus trifolium. Thank you for rescuing her.
