Id’ed with “Spring fungi of the Sierra Nevara” by D. Desjardin, and info on MykoWeb. Although these are close to Pachylepyrium carbonicola, but these were viscid, and more orange than those are supposed to be. But these could also be P. carbonaria, but I couldn’t really find enough details on these species to tell the difference.
These were fairly common in this area which was burned two years ago.
