Location: Assateague Island National Seashore, Berlin, Maryland, USA
Date Visited: January 2015
After some great tips from the woman working at the visitor center, I drove up and down the length of Assateague Island. I did indeed spot some wild horses, including one walking just on the far side of the guardrail. Luckily, there was nobody else on the road, so I was able to slow down to snap a picture. I don't think he even noticed me.
I may or may not have squealed like a child when I saw him.
The visitor center itself has some good displays about the local wildlife, including a couple of aquariums. All in all, a lovely place.
