Landscape Photography Tour Equipment List
Below is a suggested equipment list for an overnight hut based landscape photography tour. A suggested equipment list for a day landscape photography excursion follows below it. Only use backpacks or duffle bags for hut and hostel based trips. You have to carry your gear 800m up a trial from where the bus drops us off, to the Elizabeth Parker Hut. If you have to carry a suitcases on the rustic trial it would be uncomfortable. You can find nice backpacks to purchase at reasonable prices for your personal gear at Mountain Equipment Co-op if you need to buy one. There is a store on the corner of 10th ave. and 8th st. SW in Calgary.
