These crustose lichens were fairly common on the basalt rock-work which stabilizes Vista House. Vista House was created in the 1930’s by the WPA, which brought in Italian stonemasons to create a highway built literally on a cliff-face. Not for the squeemish. Just down the hillside from Vista House, there is a near vertical foot drop to near the Columbia River.
