Comments:
I think this is Reindeer lichen. Can someone confirm this? (Cladonia rangiferina) is a light-colored, fructicose lichen belonging to the Cladoniaceae family. It grows in both hot and cold climates in well-drained, open environments. Found primarily in areas of alpine tundra, it is extremely cold-hardy.

I am by no means a lichen expert (like Mac Pitcher), but this does look similar to Cladonia rangiferina here... http://www.nlnature.com/Newfoundland-Canada-Nature/1027.aspx
