suggesting this might be Tricholoma equestre or T. flavidum. If associated with Lodgepole pine, that tentative identification would be strengthened.

Here’s a good photo of Pinus contorta, aka Lodgepole pine

Notice how the stems are tall and straight: perfect for making teepees, aka lodges. On the Oregon coast this likes sandy soils. Closer to Lebanon, it’s common on top of the Cascades, near Big Lake and Lost Lake. Further east, there’s a nearly pure stand just west of Sisters, where the Ponderosa pine (long needles) are the crown forest tree, and Lodgepole pine are the smaller, subdominant tree.

Many fungi (such as Tricholoma and Tuber) can be specifies specific, meaning they are associated with just one tree species. Tricholoma is often associated with Pinus, but some can also associate with Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), Western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) and even Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis).

but can’t quite make out the species, Britney. Was this with Lodgepole pine perhaps? Looks like one of the 2-needle species, at least.

The city should come before the county in the hierarchy. I just edited the location, so you should be able to autofill the name when you edit this.
