Climbing all over the west I've noticed that no matter where I go there's always brilliant color schemes, and natural licheny paint jobs to entertain my eyes. Post some of your favorites.

I had taken some lichen photos at Smith Rock one day that we later used as the color palette for the Hood River Coffee Co. building.

I'm a bit of an aficionado of the little critters. Some of my favorite photos are of the Jackson Pollackness of nature.

This stuff from N. Carolina (courtesy of gneiss pirate and mp.com) looks more like something you should scrape off your boat.

Lichen salad...Gunks specialty!

Straight to your mouth, in the vertical lane, all you have to do is look up. The black stuff flakes off just looking at it, let alone when some newb comes up pawing around.

Great fiber, great for your heart rate, encourages a calm balanced mind...

mmmm!

cheers
