A circular polarizing filter would be good.

The only other suggestion would be an extreme wide angle lens starting at perhaps 10mm.

Nice for panoramas.

Extra battery. Maybe 2 (Depending on what you shoot. Wildlife shots will mean you'll be burning a lot of shots. landscapes you can probably get away with 1 extra battery.)

You might get an Graduated neutral Density filter to help with the bright skies.
If you want to have nice blury water fall photos, more than one ND filter might be nice (not graduated.)

Hat with a brim/rim to keep from getting a sunburn on your face.

Water bottle to carry water (Even if you leave it in the car, its still good to have some. Dehydration is a bad thing.)

Great call on the 10mm+, and the Battery. completly forgot that one. I wll definitly look into some filters too. Any links would be great if you have a favorite filter. I always like to get what other people have, that way you know it is well liked.:-)
