Here's Lobaria pulmonaria (Lungwort), with a spot moistened to be sure it turned bright green! The ruffled edges had me confused for a moment. It must have fallen from a tall tree along the Sol Duc trail.

Description from Wikipedia

Lobaria is a genus of lichens commonly known as "lungwort" or "lung moss" as their physical shape somewhat resembles a lung. Lobaria species are unusual in that they have a three-part symbiosis, containing a fungus, an alga and a cyanobacterium, the presence of the cyanobacterium allowing nitrogen fixation.
