    Yeah! Actually we just went to a place today and I stupidly forgot my camera in an early morning daze, but there were TONS of lichen out there. It seemed like even more than there were to be found at the location where these previous pictures were taken. Perhaps even just being that much closer to town makes a big difference.

    Yeah, they're really susceptible to pollution - especially the bushy lichens! They're a really good indicator of air pollution, if they grow, the air's reaaalllyyy clean. Haha, the things you learn in biology :') Shame you didn't bring your camera!

    (a tour of your part of Alaska and your collection)

    Same old muskeg, new pics. Late spring, it starts to awaken.



    Some bog plants are spreading their leaves.



    And their buds.



    Or their winter hibernaculum.



    Or maybe just putting on that last bit of ripeness to last season's cranberries.



    Or simply standing as they have for many decades.



    Others are perhaps wondering what in the world they are doing up so early. Ambystoma macrodactylum



    A perfect bed of sphagnum that I thought you all might appreciate.



    The delightful skunk cabbage, smelling great and looking even better.



    A bit of fish that some bear drug up this far.



    A marsh marigold blooming



    Taken down by the fungus.



    A bit of clubmoss.



    A bed of ferns awakening.



    Up close.



    And one of my favorite types of clubmoss. (I forget the name at the moment.)

    Man, thanks so much for the compliment! That's the view right off my porch.

    I don't have a wallpaper-sized version off hand, but you are more than welcome to steal that pic and do a size increase in MS paint with it if you like. That is what I would do to make it wallpaper-sized, but I'm not a computer whiz.
