We went on a cool windy day in early April. Watched a fascinating short film on the wild horses at the National Park Visitors Center— drove over the bridge onto Assateague Island, and immediately saw three horses grazing down by the bay!
We took the shore Trail, and not long after we reached the lookout tower we spotted three more horses standing together. Took the path of little further and before you know it we were standing very close to three beautiful wild horses!
If you have a golden eagle pass to the national parks, or even just an annual pass, this will be free for you. The park rangers couldn’t have been nicer— even the gift shop is sweet.
Most of all it’s the wild beauty of the place that gets to you. The wild horses of Assateague make it what it is, of course – – and the sense that every time you go you might find something new, and stumble across many horses or very few. I’m sure it’s different in all seasons but in early spring it was magical.
