Female northern walkingstick.
This is most likely a female northern walkingstick, Diapheromera femorata, and it may not be a full adult. Female walkingsticks are much more difficult to ID than the males, so best hope is always to find a mating pair:-)

 
Thanks!
Thanks for the ID help Eric. Find a mating pair huh? The last time I saw one of these I was 10 years old. I'm 48 now. I guess I shouldn't hold my breath! :-D
