Not Anisomorpha.
Anisomorpha does not occur in Arizona. This could be Parabacillus (very short antennae) or Diapheromera (long antennae). I cannot conclude which from this image alone.

 
Thanks for the ID help!
Eric: Next time I will try to engage the insect to see if I can get it to raise its antennae. These insects were found near the men's bathroom at a health resort in Patagonia; the bath was a bit of trek away from our cabin, especially in the middle of the night (I also found the scorpion I photo'd in this area as well). Needless to say I was probably the only person making this trek at night with a camera in hand :) Best wishes, Scott

Maybe you could crop out the head and play with the brightness and contrast to pull something out of this one.

Hi John: I'm not sure if this helps; I can't quite tell what I'm looking at. Thanks for the suggestion! Regards, Scott
