Western Skunk Cabbage
Found this about half way up Deer Mountain on the island of Ketchikan in Alaska. Theronmoon has brought it to my attention that it is called skunk cabbage.

It is called Lysichiton americanum or its common name Skunk Cabbage. A really cool plant from northern California to Alaska.
