A gem of shady, cool areas, you could miss this one easily if you're not paying attention. A single leaf and a gorgeous orchid perched on top of a slender stem that only grows to around 8 inches. While I seldom give out much information about where to find Morel mushrooms, if you're seeing these, you might be close :)
