Slender White Piperia (Piperia candida)
This tiny nondescript orchid was growing in the middle of a gravel road north of Mount Rainier in Western Washington State. Surprised to see it doing so well on a dry and dusty road so high up in the many ridges climbing to the subalpine areas, I almost missed it as I was concentrating on keeping the car from going off the mountainside.
