Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 You found a Wolf Spider (Alopecosa cf. kochi).

Oops, I had left a link to the wrong spider there. Fixed now. I’m just going to file this one to genus (Alopecosa) the shape of the median carapace stripe suggests A. kochi to me but something about the coloration gives me pause because A. aculeata is similar and I’m more used to seeing those colors on that species.
