What would be a good 26" cyclocross tire?

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

What would be a good 26" cyclocross tire?

Bikes: My 2000 Rockhopper Pro has a Surley Rigid front fork and 26 X 1.5 Nimbus Armadillos. Also have a 2003 Specialized 24" TR-X for MotoXing with my kids. And a 2002 XR400 which I don't ride nearly enough

Last year I raced Continental Cross Country tires that are 1.5" wide. They seemed to grip very well in wet and
muddy conditions which is a plus here in Portland. Though I surfed around before deciding to buy these tires,
they were also recommended to me when I showed up at the LBS to buy them. I have also been pretty happy
using them for mountain biking, though they don't do very well in loose, sandy conditions.
