Moose look bigger standing on the highway then they do on the Discovery Channel. They're like camels, only with horns instead of humps. One way to imagine what it's like to ride the Alaska Highway is to envision touring African Safari USA at freeway speeds. On our trip we saw 5 black bears, 1 grizzly, 4 moose, 13 caribou, 2 fox, 1 lynx, 1 porcupine, 1 flock of mountain goats and something that looked like a Standard Poodle. By the time you stop and turn the bike around for a closer look the animals have usually bolted (except the mountain goats that appear to relish licking the pavement). This is certainly real wilderness, and unlike their more callous cousins living in our National Parks, these animals don't submit to ogling.
