    Luggage and bags: Backpack and carry-on! I'd loose the carry-on, it was too much! Didn't leave my hands free! I downsized that day!!!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Rises in elevation can take you from 70 degree in the day to frezing at night! WEAR! Beware! Be prepared!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Some say a snakebite kit, I never needed a thing! But, I always got the basic first aid kit.

    Photo Equipment: A camera is a must!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Know the areas day time and night time temperatures they can raise and lower quickly.

    Miscellaneous: An open heart and mind.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you come in the summer bring lots of suntan lotion, we ALWAYS carry SPF 30 or 45, and use it liberally. Wear a wide brimmed hat (lightweight) and make sure your ears, nose, face and the tops of your feet (if you wear sandals) have a good supply of lotion.
    Arizona life is generally casual plenty of jeans, shorts and casual shirts. You can dress for special occassions but travelling light is the best choice.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Carry an antihistamine (like benadryl) and a good aloe cream to help with the dryness. Unless you like burnt lips, carry some chapstick with suntan lotion included to prevent burns.
    After being nearly stuck nearly everywhere in the US, we have created an emergency bag with everything we need to survive several days without aid. If you backpack or hike trails.

    Photo Equipment: A good quality tripod that is portable can be a lifesend. Getting batteries or charging without adapters for standard 120v power will make like difficult.
    Store your film in a cool location and NEVER believe the airlines about the affects of Xrays!!! Always hand check film never run it though the machine.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Buy an inexpensive styrofoam cooler from a grocery store and keep it full of ice and water. You NEVER want to go off road or far from any location without water. We carry a permanent collapsable cooler about 48 quarts that will keep things cool all day long and takes up very little space when folded flat. If you travel a lot in the states it makes sense.

    Miscellaneous: Having a food supply from local grocery stores can make you feel more comfortable if you go off roading. You may not see folks in the mountains for many miles.

    Miscellaneous: I don't know if I should suggest an umbrella or sunglasses. It rained more than we expected it to when we were in Arizona in July. If you are going to do any hiking at all I would strongly suggest proper foot wear. Not only for the comfort of your feet but also as protection from cactus spines and snakes.

    Luggage and bags: We were travelling by auto so were able to fill the trunk of the car with bags. We brought so many things we never used or wore or needed. Such as Suits and fancy clothes. Sport wear was what we wore all the time. Shorts a must good walking shoes. Sun glasses a must, swim suit for sure. A good sun hat and a warm jacket for the cool evenings. You can buy anything you need and forgot there. Travel light not like us.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Good walking shoes ( running shoes). summer wear.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you have presription drugs and are from another country bring enough for your stay as otherwise you will have to see a doctor there for a new presription.

    Photo Equipment: All is available.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Swim suit and warm jacket for evenings. SUN SCREEN a must.

    Miscellaneous: 1st trip we stayed in a rented condo and prepared a lot of our own meals. Everything needed was supplied.

    2nd trip by auto we were equipped to make coffee in the motel rooms enroute and have a light breakfast. if you spend all day driving do not eat a big meal at noon-- only in the evening after you have rested. stop every two hours and change drivers and walk around a bit ( good for your heart and circulation ----------------------------------------------------------Please visit the many other travelogues on Arizona, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas etc. listed up there on the top right.

    Luggage and bags: Anything your comfortable with. Always locking type though you can never be too careful.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Spring and Summer time it's hot so comfortable clothing that will breath since the heat can and is extreme. However I am a sun worshipper so I thrive in it. Comfortable shoes, tennis, hiking boots, and of course your dancing shoes for your night life.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen if you burn easily. Bottle that you can use for spritzing. Anything to help keep you cool. Anytype of Aloe Vera gel to help with cuts or sunburn. And any other basic medical supplies that you would normally carry on a trip.
