This spider was in the sink in a cabin a few days ago. The area is heavily wooded (mostly pine). I estimate that the body was roughly 3/4 to 1 inch long (not including the legs).

Any ID would be appreciated. I was thinking some type of Wolf spider, but I couldn't find a photo that matched this one.

Definitely a wolf spider - maybe a Gladicosa sp.
