Botton photo suggests R. occidentalis, if found in sandy soils near Lodgepole pine; upper photo could also be R. rubescens if found in same conditions. Reddish rhizomorphs at base of fungi are distinctive and suggestive. Would need to see a photo of the gleba to know more.
Spore size and shape are ultimate determining factors, although coloration and proximity to coast suggestive.
Sometimes size of sporocarp can be a factor as well. The largest Rhizopogon I know of was R. rubescens found near Sutherlin, Oregon under oak, and weighed nearly 1.3 pounds: a massive fused mass of multiple sporocarps.
