Striking pink coral fungus. It fades with age to yellow-buff.

Coral mushroom in the Ramaria genus, I think
Seen in forest not far from Van Trump Creek on the trail from Comet Falls,
Mount Rainier National Park at elevation of ~ 1350 meters (4400 feet)

Smokey Creek, Gifford Pinchot National Forest. Appeared to be "freeze-dried" to the ground.
Found half-buried in loose humus soil. Between two spruce trees. Honey brown lobes, light orange base. Firm flesh. Smells "doughy". Found at Langfield Falls; Trout Lake WA.
