I was going to say tribble too, but perhaps an Idaho hedgehog?
  My nephew is working on his doctorate at U.W and is studying mushrooms I sent him the link maybe he'll know.

From some of my facebook friends, I posted the photo it was so cool:

1.  Kooshballa onrockii?

2.  Kooshballia anemonensis?

3.  Cotton-base coral (I'm looking at my Audobon guide)?

The best I've got is a big Cedar Apple Rust Fungus, a rather large and atypical one

My 'guess'  it could be a coral finger.  Just like the name suggests, the coral mushrooms typically look like coral, although some might be better described as club-shaped or finger-like, they come in quite a few shapes and colors.

Wow! That is pretty amazing.

Have you tried posting the photo at http://mushroomobserver.org ?

Somebody over there might recognize it.

Check out the Western Montana Mycological Association website (www.fungaljungal.org). They have a lot of good mushroom identification resources, and if you are still not sure they will ID it    for you.
