I found this amongst the tumbleweed that I was clearing out. Any idea what this critter is?

Walkingstick.
Seriously, this is a female walkingstick, order Phasmatodea (aka Phasmida). I recently collected two females that were four inches or more, so not positive this one is mature, though I would think so. Probably is the "creosote walkingstick," Diapheromera covilleae.

 
Thanks
Hi, Eric. Thanks again!
