I spot this stuff everywhere. It's all along the side of the roads and highways.
I suspected it's fennel simply because it looks pretty much identical to the fennel in the garden once it starts flowering.
It doesn't have quite the same fennel smell as the garden variety (not so much of a licoriche/aniseed smell).
It almost smells like it's half way between dill and fennel. I do believe they're in the same family so it would make sense that wild fennel might fit somewhere in between.
