The Bonneville Cutthroat Trout derives its name from the ancient Lake Bonneville, and is the Utah State Fish. The trout are depicted swimming upstream, not in annual spawn, but in a last retreat from disappearing vestiges of riparian ecosystem. They commemorate the course of Parley’s Creek, now diverted underground by urban growth. As urban sprawl makes harder demands on the local ecosystem, the last remnants of biodiversity disappear unnoticed.
