The carbon build up in the combustion well looks minimal... Like Clint says, your valves look like they are sitting OK and not recessed badly into the seats... While you have the head off I would recommend that you have those valve seats touched up and replace the 4 valve stem seals... It's always a worthwhile extra measure to have the valve/seat interface refreshed while you have the head off... This will give you an as per new seal and the benefits that go along with it, like good power and good fuel economy for the duration of your travel adventure...

Also I would recommend replacement of the fore and aft mounting studs as it looks like some coolant has weeped in past the gasket and caused corrosion to get into the existing ones...
