I came up with a good collection of these just south of YNP in the first week of october 2010. I got home and realized I forgot to take a photo of them.
Found them under blue spruce at about 9000 ft. elevation. They were really woody and heavy, stood up well to the recent snow fall. They tasted slightly bitter to me though and cooked up to be bland. Keep me informed, I frequent the the sierras a lot.
