My latest guess catalyzed by See Noah Siegel’s side-by-side photos of Cantharellus cascadensis and C. formosus and references cited below.
These mushrooms have yellowish caps, stems lighter than caps, and wide base. See Cantharellus cascadensis description and photos mentioned above.

C. formosus sometimes pale

The color didn’t seem typical for either C. subalbidus (color was too dark), or C. formosus (too light). But,

“in the forest, golden chanterelles [Cantharellus formosus] are sometimes pale to almost white when sheltered from light under duff or debris …”
