With thanks to V., we have Moomintroll to introduce this week's flora. What have we got, Moomin?
Yes indeed, it's a Coralroot Orchid, Corallorhiza mertensiana, spotted on the side of the Cleetwood Trail, halfway between the rim and the lake at Crater Lake. As always, click to magnify--they're quite lovely.
*No really, it was supposed to be Friday, but somehow it didn't get posted.
