Hi Tree C.,
This is a Weevil, a member of the largest family of Beetles.  Often exact identification from a photo is impossible.  That said, we believe this is a Nut Weevil or Acorn Weevil in the Tribe Curculionini.  There are several images that look similar on BugGuide, but they are not identified to the species level.
