This certainly could be O. fultoni.....
...but since it was taken in New Mexico, there is a chance it could also be O. rileyi.

I tried cropping and zooming, but my equipment is not very sophisticated. Are you able to submit a photo with a closer view of the markings on the antennae?

 
I uploaded a
cropped version of the head

 
I'm not an expert with O. rileyi....
...but it would appear to me that the black mark on the 2d segment is at least half the length of the segment itself -- which according to SINA indicates a Snowy tree cricket (O. fultoni).

See SINA to distinguish O. rileyi

Just an opinion, but I think you are correct - this appears to be O. fultoni - Snowy tree cricket.
