Red Spiky Bee-Type Bug

We were hiking to Lower Calf Creek Falls between Escalante and Boulder, Utah last September, when we came across this strange looking bee-type bug. What is it?

What a gorgeous photo of a Tachinid Fly. It will probably take an expert to get a definitive positive species identification, but it does look quite similar to Macromya crocata, a species posted on BugGuide and photographed in nearby Arizona.
