11 Days - Should I bring the SLR?

I'm doing a trip to Seattle (for work) and then to Banff and Glacier with the ladyfriend (for fun).  I'm figuring out what camera to pack, and I'm down to two options:

Nikon D7000 with: Tokina 11-16, Nikon 35mm prime, and Sigma 18-250 macro.  Option to add Sigma 17-50 to the bag as well / instead of the Nikon 35.

Ricoh GR (can probably bring this anyway) and Nikon P900 superzoom.

Either way I'll be probably using my Samsung Galaxy S7 for some shots as well.

The SLR will surely take great shots, and the wideangle lens will be helpful, but GR might do most of what I'd want?  And the shots from the P900 aren't professional grade, but nothing can touch that zoom range.

There's no right answer, but curious for thoughts.  The P900/GR combo will of course take up much less space in my bag.  And, if I don't take the DSLR on this trip, why do I have it?  etc...
