The elegant piperia is an uncommon terrestrial orchid found in scattered locations across the Pacific Northwest at lower elevations, but most often found on rocky outcrops or in open fields mixed with conifers in early to midsummer. This one was photographed high above the Columbia Gorge on the Washington side of the Columbia River.
