Home of the Happy Lichen!

We took a drive a few days ago on the Hana Highway and spotted this.



It is lichen, on a tree, in the middle of the rain forest. We didn’t touch it or alter it in any way. Lichen is basically a composite organism made up of a fungus and an algae of some sort, obviously a very happy relationship.

Just one more example of the aloha spirit found throughout Hawaii.

I suppose the view below could be why the lichen smiles!
