Mound of Mushrooms at the LBJ National Grasslands

I did a search online but wasn’t able to identify the mushrooms featured in this post.  I’ve never seen anything like it at the LBJ National Grasslands or anywhere else.

It appeared at my favorite mushroom hideaway at the LBJ Grasslands:  Black Creek Lake.  I was at the location 2 weeks ago and the mushroom mound hadn’t appeared yet.
