This place has lots of neat lichens, its going to take quite a bit of work to make sense out of all the Cladonia present (I’m not even thinking about the Caloplaca yet).

Nice little spot. I would have thought you were too far inland for something like this and that lovely Fuscopannaria. (Great shot of the underside!)
