I’d guess Cladonia chlorophaea group

Two species, I think

I was confused for a minute, too, but the cups in the bottom photo have brown apothecia, so I think they belong to a different species. The red apothecia do not seem to ever be cupped. (Otherwise C. coccifera and C. borealis would definitely be good candidates, too.)
