Similar 'large leaf patterned moth
I just saw a moth like this today in Twisp, WA. It lighted on my car.
The wing span was approximately 3 - 3.5 inches. It looked like a dried, curled leaf until I took a closer look. Please help us identify this moth

Got one in Fort Collins, Colorado
4 inch wingspan. My first one.
