    Here are some of the lichen I found in a recent mini-foray at Wallowa Lake, OR. I live in Portland, so these were all so delightfully different.

    The lichen in the third photo (have not yet identified) is producing a ton of spores since relocating to my apartment, I sweep up the little mounds every week or so. 

    These are my first Letharia and Bryoria samples, I'm so happy to have found them.

    third picture is Hypogymnia tubulosa, it produces soredia instead of spores.

    Oh, that's wonderful, I didn't realize. Thank you!
