What is this weed?

I saw this growing near a paved street last summer but have not been able to identify it. It looks like some kind of grass but the yellow flower throws me off. Any ideas?

Someone has told me it might be Goat's Beard (Tragopogon pratensis)

I would agree with that. Area below the flower head doesn't appear swollen, which would likely make it western salsify (T. dubius).

That's a good bit of information to know, horster. I was wondering how to tell the difference. Thank you.
