A friend and I were working our way along a section on Limpia Creek when I saw a black grasshopper on a rock ahead of us. I got this one shot, then it jumped off the rock into a grassy area near the creek and I was not able to relocate it. Any thoughts on ID?

Thanks you seemed to be really odd. I'm glad you recognized it!
