Deer lichen old growth - March 2012, Zoomify

On March 25, 2012 I tried to relocate the glorious "old growth" patch of deer moss right by the highway, that I had found in 2007. The patch had struck me with its pristine condition. I wondered if it would stay that way. Over the years it has been repeatedly run over by a roadside mower. This patch in this Zoomify photo is similar but not exactly the same. See the photo. I could not find the previous location. Everything in the short 50-foot area has changed so I can't identify a tree or any other plant that I see in the old photo. I have the feeling that the lichen is diminished but 1, I've lost interest in tracking that and 2, my approach is not sufficiently scientific to have clear precise results. See a photo, Zoomify closeup or the photo closeup.
