Road trip (LAs Vegas / Bonneville / Yellowstone / Grand Canyon) : which lenses ?


End of September, we will make a roadtrip form LAs Vegas to Yellowstone and then back to LAs Vegas via Antelope / Bryce / Grand Canyon.

We rent a car in LAs Vegas and then we are on our own for two weeks. Then we take the plane to New-Orleans for a few days.

I have some doubts about which camera gear to bring.

What I have :

- Nikon D7200 and D90

- Zoom : Sigma 10-20 f/3.5, Nikon 18-140 VR, Tamron 70-300 VC

- Primes : Nikon 35 f/2, nikon 50 f/1.4, nikon 85 f/1.8

- Speedlite SB600

What I am sure to bring : the D7200, 10-20 and 18-140 and the speedlite

Telezoom : The 70-300 is nice but it's heavy and the first half of its range is already covers by the 18-140. Will I miss it ? I don't know as I seldom use it...

Backup body : Should I bring the D90 ? I don't use anymore because of it's limited ISO range and "low" resolution compared to the 7200...

Primes :

- I think that the 85 will stay home.

- The 35 is small and light and I  will take it

- the 50 is interesting for portraits but maybe of limited use for this trip ?

Your thoughts ?

Thank you
