That's a species of Suillus ("Slippery Jacks"), a genus within the family Boletacae. Note that the pores in the yellow "sponge" are elliptical and radiate out from the central stalk in "rays" almost like gills. The cap usually has a slimy cuticle, and most species exhibit blue-green staining.

There are many species in this genus, each associated mycorrizically with a particular species of tree (usually conifers). Identifying the nearest trees will help ID the mushroom.

None of the Suillus are psychoactive, none are posisonous, and few if any are worth cooking for dinner. They have mediocre flavor and a rather disgusting snot-like texture.
