Dennis -

 

Your weird grasshopper thing from the river got me to thinking...

 

Check through this site http://www.sidney.ars.usda.gov/grasshopper...Guide/index.htm which has a number of species.

 

As it turns out - the wings of a grasshopper are often not visible until the 2nd or 3rd instar (in some species...) Since there are some in Alberta that exceed 2" - you may have been looking at a late instar immature monster...

 

Just thought you might like to look about.
