Canyon Tour Utah, Arizona, Colorado

I will be on a National Park guided tour in early October by Rocky Mountaineer.  We start out in Las Vegas and finish in Denver.  5 days by motor coach and 2 by train.  Looking for suggestions on sites to photograph and thoughts on what gear to take.

Scenic guided tour Zion

Free time Lake Powell

Grand Canyon North Rim, Unesco world heritage site

Guided 4 wheel drive tour Monument Valley

Free time at Moab

Arches National Park

Scenic journey to Dead Horse State Park

Boat ride on the Colorado

Train ride from Moab to Glenwood springs

Train ride from Glenwood springs to Denver.


Bodies A7RIII and A6000 will go.

Lens 20mm F1.8 G and 24-105mm G will go.

Considering 50mm F2 Loxia and 100-400mm GM.  And 1.4 TC. Not sure if I would use these much.

Will bring small table top tripod with nodal rail.  About 16 inches high max.  I have a larger tripod but not sure it is allowed in Parks and trying to keep weight down.  Most shots likely hand held.

Also planning on using 24-105mm G with rubber lens hood on motor coach for some shots through glass and kill reflections.

I will have two sets of batteries, multiple memory cards, 1 TB drive, and MacBook as well.  Also cleaning supplies, blower, and sensor cleaning stuff.

Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.
