yes
the antennae aren't very strongly clubbed at all on the females. They look a lot like Chorthippus, but the pattern on the hind legs, slightly bulkier build, and the lack of much yellow below are all usually good clues. Also, Chorthippus curtippenis usually has black "knees".

 
Thanks
for the comments. I wonder if these hoppers make it to the alpine zone.

 
Both this one
and Chorthippus can be found in Alpine areas. They tend to be very small and sometimes darker up there, but otherwise the same. I suspect they do so on San Francisco Peak too, since the Alpine there is actually rather mild in climate (as compared to say up in Wyoming or Montana). I really need to get over there and explore that mountain one of these years.
