- Hiking and Walking
Luggage and bags: No special bag is needed for Sierra Vista. Bring whatever you're comfortable with.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It was pretty darn hot when I was there so I would bring summer gear.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Even though Sierra Vista is in the middle of no where they still have all the comforts of home.
Photo Equipment: If you have special requirements you may want to plan ahead. If not you should be able to find basic photo supplies. There might even be a good camera shop in town.
Miscellaneous: Bring something to keep you entertained at night. Once the mall closes there's not much to do.
