A Rocky Mountains Road Trip Checklist: 25 Essential Items to Bring
If you’re headed off on a road trip through the Rocky Mountains, you’re guaranteed to experience unforgettable natural scenery, wildlife sightings, mountain town hospitality, and plenty of outdoor activities, no matter the season.
While you’ll certainly find places to shop for forgotten items (albeit usually at a marked up price), much of a road trip through the Rockies consists of being a self-sufficient traveler (even if only for a day at a time) who can adapt to the likes of sudden weather changes, spur of the moment alpine hikes, and animal encounters. To help you feel more prepared so you can truly enjoy your trip, here are 25 essential items you shouldn’t leave home without!
+ A spacious daypack.
+ A buff for keeping sweat off your face or the sun off your neck.
+ Comfy merino wool socks.
