The rare "Ghost Flower" of BC 🏔🌲🍄
Monotropa uniflora, also known as ghost plant (or ghost pipe), Indian pipe or corpse plant, is a herbaceous perennial plant native to temperate regions of North America. It is generally scarce or rare in occurrence.
Unlike most plants, it is white and does not contain chlorophyll. Instead of generating energy from sunlight, it is parasitic, more specifically a myco-heterotroph. Its hosts are certain fungi that are mycorrhizal with trees, meaning it ultimately gets its energy from photosynthetic trees. Since it is not dependent on sunlight to grow, it can grow in very dark environments as in the understory of dense forest. -Wikipedia
Some mornings I wake up with an almost desperate desire to know something, anything really.
Nature, yoga, laughing, running, good coffee, sappy kisses, dog walks, hiking…..these are things I love, and when I get lost in doubt they return me to the doorstep of my truth, they bring me back into my body, back into myself. Because what is truth if it's not everything and anything that gives us the courage and the comfort to walk tall into the vast open pathless world of possibilities, even- and especially- in those moments when all we think we need is certainty.
Trust your body and move your body; trust the things you love and decorate your life with them. Often times a change in perspective comes from a simple change in posture. And sometimes to see ourselves differently we have to first be willing to actually see our world differently.
In the Northeastern part of the Navajo Volcanic field lies Shiprock... It is the literal throat of a volcano. The black dikes leading to it were rivers of lava. A formation that quite literally, erosion has brought to the surface. Photo by @ChrisBurkard

high above the clouds... snapshots are often a hundred times more powerful than planned shots. taken before sunset on Haleakala- these tourists are wrapped in blankets, which is fair enough as it was freezing on 3000 m asl!
