Assateague National Park – Aug 2022

Assateague National Park is best known for the Chincoteague ponies that have the run of the place. When we first arrived on the island, there were many grazing near the road. I did not include pictures of them because they were too easy. (Check out this NPR story about the ponies.)

There are two boardwalk trails in the park, and we walked them. That is where these pictures were snapped during the first week of August 2022. Enjoy.

The cranes are plentiful and easily viewed on the marsh walk.
One of the many ponies we saw during our visit. They are feral and plentiful.

Each has their own spot.
Nobody but me was happy to see this arachnid setting up shop on the boardwalk.
