Hi, it took me a while to find it in the photo. It may be Latrodectus hesperus, a western black widow. For other viewers: the spider is slightly left of the center, in the empty space where the big gray rock, brown wood lumber, and white rock meet. I don’t know if it is bad etiquette for me to repost the image with the spider digitally circled.
