Since we are not backpacking, a lightweight shoulder daypack is all that you should plan to bring into the canyon. A change of socks, underwear, shirt, a pair of tennis shoes or sandals, a nutritious snack for the trip down, camera, your toiletry articles, small flashlight, and any medications that you may require are about all that need to be in your pack. Two quarts of water should be adequate since you will be able to replenish your bottles once at the village.
