The collection is clearly mixed as Darvin noted. The Russula could be cascadensis, but could be any member of the white Compactae. R. cascadensis is described with a lignicolous habit and my own observations support that. It can very easily be distinguished microscopically by its unusually small and broadly ellipsoid spores. Here are my collections

The bottom three photos look like Clitocybe and the top few photos are Russula.
