What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

It looks a little like a ant?
I found this bug in eastern Oregon camping over Labor day. Not sure what it is but it looks like a really large ant with a bee abdomen. Also it’s about an inch long if you couldn’t tell from the photo. I would love any help on iding it. Thanks.

Hi Jason,
This is a Potato Bug or Jerusalem Cricket, a burrowing relative of true crickets and katydids.
