I would prefer to only bring 1-3 lenses with me on this trip because I dont want the extra weight. I was hoping someone could offer their views on what would be best to pack.

I have a Nikon D750.

My lens collection includes:

Tamron FX 90mm macro F2.8

Nikon FX AF-S 50mm 1.8G

Tamron DX 16-300mm F3.5-6.3

Nikon DX kit lens 18-55mm

I also have an Altura 0.43x super wide angle adapter

I was hoping to grab a wide angle lens but time got the best of me and now I wont be able to before the trip.

My advice, if you need someone else to tell you what camera gear to pack, just take your cell phone.

I don't see much difference between somebody asking which lens to take to XYZ, than a question like: "I'm going on a backpacking trip, I am taking dehydrated meals, should I take lasagna or Salsbury steak? Which will I like the best?"
