I'll be both tent camping and hiking in the Grand Canyon this year. I have absolutely no experience with desert terrain/heat.
What I've gathered so far is that I'll need a good hat (maybe straw cowboy hat?) and a good lightweight pair of hiking boots.
If you have any additional tips on clothing, or anything else I might not have taken into account, please share!
Any recommendations on socks to wear under those hiking boots so they won't be drenched in sweat/chafing/SMELLY!? :)
Also, recommendations of clothing brands would be helpful, too. I'm not sure where to start looking. I'm young and female, if that matters.
Thanks in advance.
