I haven't done enough walking in the woods here, but Highlander does have a lot of relatively mature forest on the grounds. I went to look for Morels the other day but only spent about 15 minutes looking.
Where are you looking in town?
I posted this picture over on Facebook too and got some answers - apparently it's a mycotrophic wildflower, Conopholis Americana, aka bearcorn, squirrel corn, or squaw root. Might be edible or have medicinal properties, haven't dug that deep into it yet. A friend found it in the woods at Highlander in New Market.
It's a fungus? I can come over with my mushroom books.
I am doing the same kind of thing in our woods right now trying to identify all the stuff. What a fun time of year.
