I'm lichen it
Today I spent the first day of the rest of my life walking through the woods with my young cousin.
He is visiting from Texas and staying with my parents so we went walking through their woods to get the lay of the land.
While walking through an area that I don't hike over very often, we noticed some red color under foot in an area of where the path was soft with decaying wood.
The red is the spore of a lichen called British Soldier Lichen (Cladonia cristatella).
