What is this?

Questa, NM(Zone 5b)

At first I thought ‘cricket’, but they don’t make noise. They’re all over my house, even in winter. Northern New Mexico, 7600 ft. Missing one rear leg. Thank you!

This is a camel cricket (family Rhaphidophoridae) of some type. These basically are nuisance pests that seldom do any real harm. See also https://www.insectidentification.org/insect-description.asp?identification=Camel-Cricket
