Canadian Rockies photography

I am trying to get a new dslr camera before my trip to Canadian Rockies : Nikon d3300 with 18-55mm lens. I am not sure whether I should get the additional 55-200 mm lens. Would it make more sense to get the second lens also?

Yes get the telephoto lens so you can get wildlife photos from a safe distance.

+1 to Tom

When considering distances you would need to cover with the lens, the very strong recommendation is to stay one bus length away from all wildlife other than bears, rutting elk, calving elk, lynx, wolves and cougars. Those you leave at least 2 bus lengths, if not more.

Big correction to my earlier post...

It's three bus lengths from most wildlife and 10 bus lenghts (100m) from bear, cougar and wolves (and I'd add rutting/calving elk to that list).
