Narrow-winged Tree Cricket (Oecanthus niveus)? - Oecanthus fultoni - male Narrow-winged Tree Cricket (Oecanthus niveus)? - Oecanthus fultoni - male

I believe this is a Snowy tree cricket
The wings are much wider than those of a Narrow-winged tree cricket.

Although the black markings on the front of the base of the antennae would be a good character for telling which of these two species it is, your photo does show another distinguishing character -- a more robust 1st antennal segment (the scape) than would be seen on O. niveus.

Here are drawings to compare the two from the Singing Insects of North America website:
