    Luggage and bags: No bags in hot summer except one for your camera, good (safe) pockets (or comfortable belt) instead. Small city rucksack for warm winter.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Light clothes (shorts, T-shirts, better too large :-) made of natural materials (cotton) for warm/hot days all year round.
    Sweater/pullover and/or jacket for cold evenings/nights (from November till April).
    Shoes? Oh, yes - you should have them :-). Sandals for city walking and/or good walking shoes for trails around (dangerous reptiles and insects possible).
    Add sun glasses.

    Check the 10-day forecast for Yuma:
    National Weather Service

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Good sun protection cosmetics with high UV filter - use them BEFORE you start to walk around in a sun.

    Photo Equipment: Be prepared for large contrasts between sun and shadow - sun filters recommended.

    Miscellaneous: Tourist frige with ice cubes and cold beverages inside :-).

    Packing List

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I discovered that Yuma gets cold just like everywhere else in winter, I had expected warmer weather, & hadn't factored the low humidity into it, so if it's winter when you visit, bring the woollies!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: bucket loads of moisturiser!!!! Serious!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Cool clothes. Light long sleeve shirts to keep the sun off, you will burn out here and quickly.

    Miscellaneous: Always be sure to bring plenty of water. Of course you can get it here, but I recomment buying bottled water.
