Its best to have at least two lenses for your camera: a zoom that takes in the range from wide-angle (24-35mm) through standard focal distances (50-70mm), and a telephoto zoom (a 60-300mm works very well).
A Canadian Park Ranger told us that the biggest danger on the Alaska Highway is from people who do not follow this advice, thus causing accidents. Its more exciting for everybody to see a bear than to come around a corner and find someone stopped in the center of the road trying to watch a bear. So get your car off the road, and then shut off the engine. Make no sudden moves or sounds. Remember that you are invading the animals home, and that its rights are foremost. The quieter you are, the more likely it is that the animal will look you over for a moment and then go back about its business, leaving you plenty of time for photos.

Moose are grazing animals, eating twigs, bark, grasses, moss, and water lilies. Willow is one of their favorite foods. Although moose live in small groups in the winter, during the summer months they tend to live alone, the males are rarely sighted down from the mountains.
