Looking at your photo, it doesn't seem shaggy enough for Shaggy Manes. You say you're from Arizona? (this is one mushroom where it's important to know where you're from)

That looks to me more like Podaxis pistillaris, often called the Desert Shaggy Mane. Unlike a regular Shaggy Mane the cap will never open up and the gills will not autodigest. It behaves more like a puffball with a long stem. They are actually genetically related to the Shaggy Manes, but this form is better for a dry environment like Arizona. Note that the photo in the link is an older specimen - when young they resemble Shaggy Manes very closely. David Arora has better photos in his book, even if they are only halftone black & white.

According to Arora, they are edible if eaten when the insides are still white (just like Shaggy Manes).

An excellent find.

Happy mushrooming!
