Description

Boo! Just in time for Halloween, found this Ghost Flower, on a trail in Maple Park.

Ghost flowers don't have any chlorophyll-- they feed off fungus that feed off trees.

Beautiful! I learned these as "Indian Pipe" growing up.

Yeah-- I believe that's what they are more commonly called. This was my first time getting to see them in real life! It was a great way to start off a hike!
