Good thought, Musicwolf ...
Looks like Reindeer Moss to me - Genus Cladoniahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cladonia
Hmm ... interesting. You should include that detail in your spotting description or notes, might be helpful. Pretty stuff, isn't it?
I don't think it's Usnea because this stuff grows on the ground, not on tree branches like wiki says.
Some kind of beard lichen, I think, groosha6 ... genus Usnea.
