Fragile Lichens

Those fragile crusty gray lichens, favorite food of Caribou and often found growing on rocks in the dryer and higher areas around Cordova and the Copper River Delta, are fascinating creatures, actually symbiotic fungi-algae. The area around the top of the rocky outcrops at the end of the trail on Heney Ridge is an excellent location to study these interesting organisms.
