Lone Pine What to Pack: 1 reviews and 1 photos
Luggage and bags: The only luggage you'll bring is the one that you carry on your back. Make sure to buy or rent one that fits properly. I got mine via mail order. Big mistake. Its tough enough to carry 50 lbs without it swinging from side to side while you're trying to ascend and descend.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Since your pack has to hold your tent, sleeping bag, food and other must have items and since it must be carried on your back, its best to travel light. Study hiking shoes are a must. I brought sandals as a "luxury item" (although I left the terrycloth bathrobe at home), and highly recommend a pair for apres hiking. Rain gear is essential in the summertime and a gore tex jacket can double as a wind layer. The basic rule of thumb for summer is three layers- t shirt/shorts, long sleeve layer/long underwear and insulating layer/wind layer. A parka is not a bad idea either as it gets quite chilly on mornings and in the evenings.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: First aid is more essential as there are no 24 hour pharmacies out here. Everyone looks and smells pretty outdoorsy, so the body lotions and perfumes are unnecessary, with the exception of "mountain makeup"- sunscreen and lip balm.
Photo Equipment: A must.
