The problem with this observation of this species is rather simple: it has never been reported on wood. Here, obviously, is at least something growing directly from wood.

…but doesn’t match Aurora’s description. In fact, doesn’t match anything in Aurora since it is growing directly on wood. BTW, the substrate is an old-growth Noble fir log about 4.5 feet in diameter, on the north west-facing slope of Larch Mountain, about 150 yards from West of the parking lot. I considered C. laeticolor, but this is neither flattened, spatula-shaped; and bright yellow (I’d say nearly neon yellow). While more than one sporocarp may be arising from the same base, that base would have to be underneath the wood surface in one of the cracks. Mostly it appears singular, though fruiting near each other. All specimens shown were found within 4 linear feet of each other.
Doesn’t look gelatinous in the photos.
Wrong shape (too blunt and robust) for Calocera cornea.
Wrong shape (no forking) for C. viscosa.
Wrong shape (not brains) for most other jelly fungi.
Clavulina laeticolor is what I’d guess, if I had a gun to my head.
Could this have been one of the small, yellow jelly fungi? Hard to tell the size from the pictures.
