Microcentrum rhombifolium? From what I am reading that seems to be the katydid that lays exposed eggs like this. It is amazing to me that anything can survive the kind of cold we have been having, exposed like this!

Beautiful shot!
My first guess would be Greater Angle-wing Katydid (Microcentrum rhombifolium), but I don't know whether the Southwestern Angle-wing Katydid (Microcentrum latifrons) ranges into Utah. Hopefully you'll get to see them emerge in the springtime!

 
Thank you Kellly.
I was quite pleased to find an insect related item to photograph on this frosty morning!
