Just one more - The city of Minot, ND as viewed from the back yard of my 97-year old mother's house.

I took that picture in Maine last week. Stoloniferous' pinesap is in the same genus, Monotropa. They're in the same family as Rhododendrons and blueberries, believe it or not.
Beautiful pictures Stoloniferous, the Indian Cucumber / Medeola is a favorite of mine, the fall colors are always striking.

Suunto, I had no idea there were trees and hills in the Minot area - I've never been but I used to hear all about it for years from a friend who was stationed up there at the air force base. Much prettier than I imagined!

So they are not related to the indian pipes I had confused them with.
Boy they do resemble them a lot ........
They are really cool looking. Do they grow as far north as Michigan?
What type of forest are they found in? Acidic and moist?

Pinesap is closely related to Indian pipe. You can see their native range here: PLANTS Profile for Monotropa hypopithys (pinesap) | USDA PLANTS . . .basically, they're native to the whole US.
