I am leaving next week to do a photo workshop in Zion National Park. After Zion, we will be going to the Slot Canyons near Page, Arizona.

I was planning on traveling light and bringing two lenses with me each day. One is my Sigma 17-70. It's not a fast lens, but it's what I have. Since it's not fast, it's not as heavy as some of the f2.8 lenses which is a good thing for a 115 lb. woman

I was also thinking of renting a Tokina 11-16 to cover wide angle better than my Sigma

I ~may~ bring my 70-300 but am not sure.

Can anyone advise which are the best focal length lenses for Zion National Park and the Slot Canyons? They will be used on my crop sensor D300.

Thanks in advance!
