I submitted this photo yesterday (9/26/20) to Arthropods of Colorado % Wyoming & was identified as a Huntsman. It caused some excitement as well as suggestions to submit it to iNaturalist & BugGuide for confirmation. It was motionless above an exterior door & remained so as 4 people studied it at about 1:30 pm. It has been confirmed as a Huntsman by 2 individuals on iNaturists. I have just registered with Bug Guide & submit this photo requesting identification assistance.

Maybe Peppered? I found this one just before dusk resting on some Goldenrod growing in the parking area. I have more photos if a specific angle is necessary for identification. Hope someone can help me id this cutie.

Found at dusk on Goldenrod growing in one of the parking areas. After exploring bug guide photos of stink bug and leaf-footed bug nymphs, I'm stumped. Here's hoping someone recognizes this cool looking specimen from one photo. The low light prevented me from getting any more good images.
