Corallorhiza mertensiana fma. pallida

Corallorhiza mertensiana fma. pallida
This is the pale form of the Western Coralroot photographed on a recent hike up Goat Mountain in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. I had gone to see another Coralroot, Corallorhiza trifida, the Early Coralroot, but knew that these were blooming near the beginning of the trail at a lower elevation and stopped to photograph them also.

Note: we are still traveling and hiking today so my commenting will be delayed. Eleven states and 6000 miles in the past three weeks.
