LICHEN, BLOMSTERDALEN

LICHEN, BLOMSTERDALEN

During a lovely walk up into the Blomsterdalen valley, we paused by this lichen-covered rock and learned that it takes at least 50 years for lichen to reach this orange state. It is also only possible if a living organism such as a bird has alighted on the rock.
