We’d hoped to encounter the famous ponies of Maryland’s Assateague Island on the beach. But on the day of our visit we saw them only along the highway near the entrance to Assateague State Park. These are feral horses, left largely to their own devices, one of the last wild herds in the United States. They seemed unpurturbed by us as we pulled our car over and photographed them from the other side of the road. Few were out this day, and only these two were close enough to photograph, even with my camera at maximum zoom.
