It was maybe 1.5" tip to tip at the tail of the wings, slightly less nose to tail of wings.
I appreciate the suggestion of a sphinx moth, but after researching them a bit I find that they are larger and hail from desert climates. This one was found in high alpine pine forest terrain.

Thanks for the excellent link. After wading through all of the Shoshone County, Idaho known inhabitants I still haven't found a match but I will keep searching.
