This certainly looks like Aleuria, but landscaping fungi are always a bit mysterious. Are there other options you were considering?

Thanks Keuda, They are pretty common in the area, whether it is landscaping, gravel roads or paths, or mulchey (is that a word)? areas. I've always known them as Peziza, but that is a genus of fungi. I've seen these listed as orange peel peziza although they are genus Aleuria?

in the resources I have, this was the only thing I was coming up with that was a match. Do you know of other look-a-likes?

I do not, at least from checking Demystified and Mykoweb. The main things that give me pause with your image are that they seem much thicker than A. aurantia I've seen, and they don't have the whitish flush on the underside, though perhaps the photo is just blurry.
