Found this in the garage at our home in Julian CA….lived here 10 years and never seen this before……acts like a grasshopper the way it jumps

We quickly identified your grasshopper on BugGuide as a Dragon Lubber in the genus Dracotettix, a small group of species endemic to California. Sadly, your photo does not show the crest which would be more visible from the side.
