I have an LHT and it's not overkill for what you are planning. Used mine in 2009 for a week-long trip in MT, BC and AB and I also use it for 3-day trips. It's also great for commuting, erands, etc. And as for "overkill" in general, you may want to do something later that requires "more" bike than you imagine you need for what you are currently planning.

In any event, have you looked at the Safari from REI? It's in your price range. And if you don't like it they will take it back.
