Flashlight could come in handy
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Depending upon what time of year it is and how quickly it gets dark, you may need a flashlight. I was hiking last August and found myself trying to hike up the Soutrh Kaibab trail when I ran into another family with kids. I had the presence of mind to pack a flashlight. I asked the other family how they would be able to see going back up the trail - especailly with kids. They were thankful I had a flashlight. I was happy about it too.
Luggage and bags: small backpack and a bag to keep think cool
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: hiking shoes
Photo Equipment: depend what you want to do. it was not easy to take picture out of a helicopter or take pictures from fast flying condor. the sun can also be a problem.
Miscellaneous: important enough to drink, something to eat a sunhat good shoes and maybe something against the insects
- National/State Park
- Hiking and Walking
Luggage and bags: Bring a daypack or hiking pack for the trails. If you are camping, bring backcountry gear.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wear hiking boots or comfortable shoes that grip well. You might want to bring a poncho, but really, any rain in the canyon will feel pretty good.
For clothing, shorts and t-shirts are fine, but you might want something light-weight and long-sleeved to protect against the hot sun.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bandaids, snakebite kit (maybe)
Photo Equipment: camera with 100, 200, 400 film...the usual.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sunscreen, SPF >30. Possibly insect repellant.
Miscellaneous: BRING WATER BOTTLES or a Camelback-type hydration system and LOTS of water!!!!!!
Luggage and bags: A backpack large enough to carry two or three litres of water plus your other gear.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good hiking boots are essential or you risk a strained ankle at best. You will need warm clothes early on, but shorts and t-shirt by midday. I'd advise you to take a hat as well.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Lots of sunblock.
Photo Equipment: Keep it light. If you take along a load of photo equipment and a tripod, you will regret it after about 10 minutes. It's at least three hours up and three hours back, and you have a long, long way to climb.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Just in case, I'd take a torch and a whistle. Better safe than sorry.
Miscellaneous: If you take nothing else, you MUST take at least 2 litres (that's about 4 pints) of water and some high calorie food. I recommend the largest packet of peanut M&Ms you can buy.
Luggage and bags: Backpaks are ideal, especially if you plan to overnight in the Canyon itself.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure you have strong touring boots, plenty of water, a hat and sunscreen, too.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can buy basic pills in a 7-Eleven in Grand Canyon Village but if you need special medicine, you will want to bring it along.
Photo Equipment: Any camera will do, films, batteries are available in local tourist shops.
Hikingshoes and waterbottle
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good hikingshoes are highly recommended on a descent to Phantom Ranch.
Photo Equipment: Enough films as you can keep on shooting beautiful pictures.
Miscellaneous: A waterbottle to prevent dehydration as it is warm and dry in the deep.
