Unidentified spider - Dolomedes tenebrosus - female

Unidentified spider - Dolomedes tenebrosus - Female
Adirondack Mts., northern Saratoga County, New York, USA
July 27, 2015
Size: 3 inches including legs
At 12:50 p.m. on 6/27 (temp ~80 F), I took the first two photos of this spider carrying a parcel. The 1” wide, green-vinyl strip that she is clinging to indicates her large size. Though she was in the shade at the time, the sun eventually came around and she disappeared.

By 9:00 a.m. 6/28 (temp hi 70s F), she had reappeared on an upright post about 9’-10’ from where she was the day before (3rd photo). Her parcel had been deposited about a foot away from her on the same post, and scores of offspring had emerged (4th photo).

What species is she?
