Rocky Mountain National Park What to Pack: 7 reviews and 8 photos
Luggage and bags: Rocky Mountain National Park offers great backcountry camping so a backpack is something you should bring even if you have just been thinking of giving it a try. A day pack is essential to carry extra clothing and food on day hikes into the mountains.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A good pair of sturdy hiking books with ankle support is what you need for tackling the many trails of this hiking paradise. Warm cushioned socks will make your feet happy. Synthetic layers are best for this high elevation park. Bring a warm hat! While it is in sunny Colorado, much of it is over 8000 feet and weather is changeable any time of year. Rain gear is another thing not to forget. Thunderstorms are common in summer and drizzle anytime the sun is not out.
Photo Equipment: A wide angle lens allows you to bring things into the foreground of your photos, making them more interesting. A zoom is needed for wildlife photography. You don't want to get too close to a rutting elk! A tripod is great for low light situations and cute couple shots.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Rocky Mountain National Park is a camping paradise. Bring your tent, a warm sleeping bag, sleeping mats and a camp stove. You'll save money and see more of the nature you came for in the first place.
Miscellaneous: D proves that even when the opportunity is not there, by improvising and going with the flow, you can make Plan B every bit as good as Plan A.
