I woke up this morning and went for a walk on the property and these were all over the place! I am fairly new to shrooming, but I am 85% sure these are Chanterells.
I just need to get several opinions to make sure. I am in east Texas and we have had some rain the last few weeks and they are popping up all over.

I agree it could be Cantharellus cibarius or Cantharellus lateritius. What a find!

That certainly does look like a Chanterelle. You may find this link useful. It gives some key features to look for and also to avoid. One key tip. The cut stem on a Chanterelle is always white and the underside is comprised of false gills that are decurrent..(they extend on to the stem)
Oh,by the way, Mike, they make a great soup with white wine and queso fresco Smiling
