Not in burn

This was not in a burn.
Second-or — more probably — third growth mixed conifer: Abies grandis (Grand Fir); Pinus ponderosa (Ponderosa Pine); Pseudotsuga menziesii (Douglas-fir). Plus a few Acer (Maple) in open spots (next to roads, in gaps among larger trees).

Was this in a recently burned forest? This looks more like a “natural black” morel to me (M. snyderi or M. brunnea).
