I thought these were "California Spanish Moss," aka lace lichens, aka Ramalina menziesii. I looked at the following reference, but don't know how scientific it is: http://homeguides.sfgate.com/spanish-moss-really-moss-75065.html

Good point! There's a lot of green tufty stuff that's definitely Usnea, but when I actually stop and think about it all of the really hang-down drapey stuff has been lace lichen, so I think you're right. I'll pay attention next time I'm out hiking and confirm.
