First Grand Canyon trip

Last minute invite on the Grand Canyon. Super excited. What are things you ladies really wish you had but didn't bring? What are the must haves launching June 1!

Colorado River

We floated the river last August. I am very, very glad that I brought long underwear. The water is really cold.

Small pee bucket for near your tent so you're not wandering down to the river in the middle of the night....and yes. Lotion. Lots and lots of lotion.

I got a rash from sitting in a wet seat all day. Someone on the trip brought some Desitn. Cleared it up over night. Also make sure you have some Imodium in your first aid kit.

If you do not have one already, pick up a quality LED headlamp and take spare batteries. Headlamps come in real handy if you have to go outside to the groover etc after dark, or if you want to read a book after dark or find gear in the dark.
