    I can't tell what kind of wood it's growing on :(

    But it is a Hericium species. GINORMOUS!

    also the where geographically could play a role in what species it is.

    Yeah, not a true Mane, but it's right close. I would harvest that chunk and go straight to the Farmer's Market lol.

    that would be by far the largest h. abietis i have ever seen, and they are very common in the olympic mountains.
