Cobblestone Lichen

Acarospora sp.

Description:

Yellow and brown lichen that had the appearance of little cobblestones as the name suggests. I believe the white and gray one in the fourth photo is just one that died.

Habitat:

On the boulders and cliff face at Schoolhouse Beach in Bodega Bay

Been in this area for a long time., This place is vast and it is funny how one can end up focusing on a chosen few At the expense of missing out on the beauty of unexplored territory. One day!

Yes you should! We were able to fit a lot of fun in one day and go to Armstrong Redwoods and Bodega Bay in the same day because they aren't too far apart.
