Giant spider on my door. Walked up to the door this morning and saw this beautiful lady waiting for me. I moved her to a tree so she can rest.

Looks like a wolf spider.

Wolf spiders tend to be relatively large/robust, with strong bodies and legs. They are often brown or grey and can display striping on their legs.

Your image is not great and you lack sufficient detail (size, location,etc.) for a more certain ID. However, two examples of wolf spiders in the genus Tigrosa have similar characteristics to your image:

If you provide more detail, I could try to update my post accordingly.
