Good hiking / walking shoes. Clothing - always keep a jacket close by. If you don't like the weather here....it will change in 5 minutes so stick around!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquito repellant - these varments love me...but luckily only come out at dusk!
Photo Equipment: Camera with a zoom lense - waterfalls and mountains galore!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Forest Service campgrounds ($8 per evening) are the cheapest. No amenities except pump your own water and outhouses (clean!).
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It's usually sunny, even in Winter but it can get cold. It can suddenly rain hard but doesn't usually last more than an hour. Snow can be heavy from October through April so bring snow gear, good tires, chains just in case.
