I’d say this was growing on Red alder (Alnus rubra) which is common in the North Bend area. I’d also say this was Pleurocybella porrigens. I have found Pleurocybella porrigens on Red alder before. Although it is uncommon, it does grow on hardwoods (at least alder) too. Especially in rainforest-like areas. Based on the ferns species in the photo (Sword, Deer, Bracken) this looks like rainforest.

Were these

2-3 inches wide, and covering a hardwood (maple, alder, oak, or similar wood)?
