My I phone can record live shots. It’ll take a short video which allows me to say ;June 22, 2018, Mack, mount Whitney.” Or some such information.

For landmarks, assuming these are digital photos, there are a couple ways that I know of. JPEG files usually have extra data attached to them in a format called EXIF, and that data can sometimes be used to figure out where the photo was taken.
First, and easiest, some cameras have GPS receivers (or other location sensors), and will attach your location data to the photo in an EXIF tag. Most smartphones do this by default. This data can later be read by appropriate software. E.g. I've heard of software that will put your photos on a map according to where they were taken -- I haven't tried it myself though.
Second, digital cameras that don't have GPS will normally at least have a clock, and put the time and date of the photo in an EXIF tag. If you have a record of where you were each day (e.g. I wrote down my mileage according to the Halfmile app each night), you can infer which stretch of the trail the photo is from.
And lastly, when you're not sure where you took a photo but have some guesses, you could always just google those guesses and see if they look like your photo.
I'm afraid none of that is much help for identifying hikers, though... I too wish I'd taken down who was in which photo (and taken more photos of people and less of scenery). I've always wished cameras would let you record a short voice clip with your photo, e.g. "Picture of Mike, mile 2352".
