White Fox, Torch River, Saskatchewan, Canada September 13, 2016 Size: ~12 mm
Turned up on a sheet I covered a tomato plant with last night. It didn't freeze, but 3C is cool for this large, old, slow moving spider. Close to 12 mm body length despite looking dehydrated.
After browsing the guide Araneus saevus looks close.
