Lichen on Bridge Parapet
Lichen on Bridge Parapet
The farm just beyond the field is Blake Hills (NY3628), in the distance is Souther Fell (NY3529).

The green lichen is, I think, Rhizocarpon Geographicum and is quite common on hard acid rocks in upland areas. The names derives from its map-like appearance.
