Weathered wood (particularly juniper for whatever reason, you see it in pinyon-juniper forests in the southwest very often) is not an uncommon substrate for Xanthoparmelia.

The features seem to fit X.hypofusca, but I can’t find any reference to it being on wood. The wood in question is live Juniperus shrub, although some branches are dead or half-dead (typical for conifers surviving on top of the bluff).
