Western Rattlesnake Orchid (Goodyera oblongifolia)
The giant rattlesnake orchid - the most frequently encountered orchid I've seen so far in the state of Washington in bloom on Mount Rainier. I've seen these orchids from the lowlands near the Puget Sound to almost the tree-line in the Cascades Mountains. While the leaves are beautifully patterned and evergreen, the flowers are quite simple and white.
