Come to think of it, I'm not actually bothered by the color Clay's original post mentioned. Small accents in a brighter color, like Ken's electric green tree frog or a brightly colored fungus, aren't necessarily annoying to me.
I used to like the idea of black, but I feel browns, blues, and greens work much better (aesthetically speaking) once trail dust enters the picture.
