At an elevation of 5,538 ft (1690 m)
Luggage and bags: Additional bags for shopping may be necessary.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pack sun glasses and comfortable shoes for hiking the Mule Mountains! Light cotton clothes (shorts, T-shirts) for warm or hot days. Sweater/pullover and/or jacket/coat for colder evenings/nights. Bisbee is situated in the Mule Mountains at an elevation of 4,540 feet (1690 m) thus both days and especially nights are colder than in say Tucson. Difference in day-night temperature may be high. Pretty warm days but freezing nights and even snow in winter are common!

Photo Equipment: Lots of film or memory cards and your polarizer lenses, enhancing lenses especially for pictures at bright sunlight.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Tourist frige with ice cubes and cold beverages inside :-). A lot of drinking water for hiking trips around Mule Mountains.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Because Bisbee is in the mountains, it can get quite cold in the winter so bring heavy
clothing & stuff to layer with. It can even snow there. Late summer is monsoon season,
so sudden rain is common usually accompanied by lots of lightning. Comfortable shoes because there is a lot of uphill walking.
Photo Equipment: I would stock up on film & batteries before going because there are not much options for buying them while in Bisbee, therefore they are quite expensive.
