fungus on pine tree

hello, I was hiking in the Vedauwoo/Blair area, up above Middle Fork of Crow Creek July 12, 2013 and observed these growths on the bark of the pines in the area. They were about 2-3 inches diameter, off white, relatively soft to the touch, and, when broken, appeared to be full of spores like a puffball. When broken, it felt much like "puffing" out a slightly immature puffball. They did not stick out very far from the surface of the tree, perhaps an inch, but there was no stem or shelf. The growth was more flush to the pine bark. A couple of photos are attached. It doesn't seem to be a conk or polypore mushroom - too flush to the surface - or a cryptoporus volvatus - too soft and puffy. The times I've found cryptoporus, it's pretty tough and hard. What is this? Thanks, Sharon Kubichek
