Lens for Grand Canyon travel

Hi, I'm about to embark on a week-long rafting trip through the lower-half of the Grand Canyon. Space is very limited, so I'm planning to bring my D7000 and a single lens. But which lens?

My options:
Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6
Sigma 17-50 OS f2.8
Sigma 18-250 OS f3.5-6.3
Nikon 35mm f1.8G
Nikon 50mm f1.8D

My gut reaction is to bring the super-zoom, just because I'm really not sure what to expect, so maximum flexibility would be nice. But would the speed and quality of the primes and the 17-50 might make up for a big loss of flexibility?

Any suggestions?
