Nice set; I also see you carried full size tripod. I believe you for you photography is first, hiking second. I still hike first & can't "afford" to carry heavy tripod; instead I pack gorilla which is light but can't really support load of heavy full-frame + lens. Sometimes I get lucky, but more often end up cursing.
An example: On recent hike to Sunshine Meadows I was about to hike out, but on junction to Wawa ridge thought what the heck I'll go up (20 min) no problems if I walk the road in dark. And I got rewarded -- that awesome, brilliant light you get just after the sun sets down and sky goes haywire with pink and orange. Add Assiniboine in the mix and you get the picture. But I got only gorilla. I refuse to crank up ISO because I hate grain (despite what they tell you about cameras being good in high ISO, this is a myth; I shoot ISO 125 or 160 -- if I go above on 100% blow I will see grains showing up -- and I have high end camera). So what to do? I use gorilla, ISO 320, F8 (for landscapes I don't compromise on this either) and 2.5 sec exposure. Then I get home, and after I blow up to pixel level 100% I notice shake which would not be there with good tripod.
One of pics that turned out great (sharp even on 200%) with excellent DOF (F8 pays off, every time) is this:
I'd not mind coming here just for a photo shoot because it is such a photogenic spot; but of course as soon as you specifically for photo shoot, carry tripods and who knows what -- light sucks
