  • Ghost pipes found off the beaten path in Ranier, MN. They were located near white/paper birch trees with medium floor covering in the woods. “The area where I found them did not have any direct sunlight,” said Kallie Kantos of Perceptions Photography in International Falls. “When you look up information on them, you’ll see that they don’t require photosynthesis. Likely that they belong to the blueberry family.” Submitted photo. (For more information on ghost pipes, see p. 5.)
