"Hiking and Photography" Arches National Park Packing List Tip by KimberlyAnn

Arches National Park What to Pack: 9 reviews and 10 photos

  A Primitive Hiking Trail
by KimberlyAnn

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A good sun hat is important any time of the year.

Photo Equipment: Be prepared to carry your camera equipment; so do not pack along anything you are not willing to carry while hiking. A zoom telephoto lens such as a 28-200 or 28-300 is good to carry. If you do not wish to carry a tripod, a hiking stick with unipod capabilities will add some extra stability for that shot.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Sturdy hiking boots and a good telescoping hiking stick are invaluable if you are planning hikes into the more difficult terrain. Even for short easy hikes, comfortable walking shoes are mandatory at all times. If you are backpacking into the backcountry, you must carry your own stove and all the water you will need.
