So it's definitely a plant that doesn't need chlorophyll. There are no members of Orobanchaceae in that area that look quite like this that I know of, so your options are really P. picta or Corallorhiza. Corallorhiza doesn't have those globular buds (see http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?enlarge=0000+0000+0812+2773, http://calphotos.berkeley.edu/cgi/img_query?enlarge=1336+3162+1814+0029), so I think invertboy has it right.
