Ghost pipe plant is cool

Otherworldly, but oh so cool is the Ghost pipe plant (Monotropa uniflora).   Also known as Pipe or Corpse plant these flowers were in the deep forest on a slope by a stream. I have only seen this species of plant one other time in my lifetime. That was on Cypress mountain in 2008 during a field trip.  Tim Burton comes to mind as well as Dr. Suess 🙂
