what kind of mushroom is this?

Ok i found this growing in my lawn just before I was about to mow. Its about 10 inches long, maybe one inch around. long skinny and yellowish in color? doesn't have a hood like normal mushroom, but has the same textures. what is it? I would post a pic, but don't know how! lol

Does it look like this? Or is the cap more umbrella shaped?

Knowing where you live might help narrow it down as well...

Oops, i thought i posted where i live. I live in Central Oregon, which is a high desert, very hot in the summertime, and snowy in the winter. It does not look like that. The one i have almost looks like a nasty yellow version of an asparagus plant.

It sounds like a yellow stinkhorn. You might google it to see--hard to tell without a picture.

Here are a couple of pictures of yellow stinkhorn

If I was paying attention, I'd have seen your location under your name *blush* Do either of these pics look like what you have?
