Interested in College in Alaska?

Coralroot Orchid
Corallorhiza mertensiana

I found a colony of these orchids growing near our house. They are situated so as to catch the light of the setting sun, so I thought it would be nice to try getting some pictures in that light.

Location: Hillcrest Drive, Sitka, Alaska
