climbed around on a northern spur of the mountain for much of that morning.
And here by chance, I happened upon a small, vivid colony of lichen. In
the shadowless white light it was dazzlingly colorful and instantly grabbed
my attention. The surreal fantasia of colors and patterns in the lichen
merged with exquisitely suggestive shapes in the lines and contours of
the rock. I felt a wonderful exhilaration, all the more so because of
my low expectations given the weather. Here was an astonishing slice of
beauty hidden amidst the dark monotones of an overcast morning.
