It doesn't look right but that's the closest match I can come up with.

Well, maybe it's a Eriophyllum ambiguum (Woolly sunflower)

I'm only three years late in answering this post, but for what it's worth, I'm leaning towards Yellow Frocks. I'm in the middle of putting up a page for False Woolly Sunflower (which has only five ray flowers ... the things that most people would call petals). Here's what I have so far...
False Woolly Daisy (Syntrichopappus fremontii):

Here's my page for Pringle's Woolly Sunflower (Eriophyllum pringlei):

Woolly Daisy (Eriophyllum wallacei):

And Yellow Frocks (Eriophyllum ambiguum):

It's never too late! I agree, that my photo looks very similar to yours for Yellow Frocks. This information is kind of timely -- I just came back from DV with a bunch more photos of flowers I've yet to identify.
