Washington State What to Pack: 9 reviews and 4 photos
Luggage and bags: Washington State is a backpacking paradise and this is one place you can truly use a backpack to carry all you need for a multi-day camping trip. For those not so inclined a simple day pack will suffice for long beach walks or even shorter ones in the rain forest and alpine areas.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Pack layers of synthetic clothing for the highly changeable weather that is the Pacific Northwest. The Pacific is cold and even on warm days, the breezes are cool. If it fogs up, the temperatures drop quickly. It can snow in alpine areas even in the summer so always carry warm gear including a warm hat. Sturdy water proof hiking boots are needed for all but the shortest beach walks and don't scrimp on socks. Your feet will thank you for it. Rain gear is essential in a state that gets its fair share of rain.
Photo Equipment: A wide angle is great for bringing the foreground into your landscape photos and a zoom is like gold for shots of wildlife. Get one with image stabilization for less than optimal lighting. A tripod is needed for low light shots in the rain forest and for cute couple shots.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: WA is great for camping. Bring a tent, synthetic sleeping bags, mats and a backpacking stove.
Miscellaneous: Someone to enjoy all the great outdoor activity with. Thanks D. You're perfect.
