It's close to Interstate 97, just down the road from Lures Bar and Grille and 10 minutes from the heavy traffic of Annapolis. Yet as you set foot onto Anne Arundel County's most recent environmental management enterprise, you'd swear you had entered the most remote regions of the Blue Ridge mountains. A barely used path twines through growths of wild blackberry and Virginia creeper, follows a plunging ravine past dogwoods and poplars, and disappears near a cedar tree whose bark has been stripped near the roots, a telltale sign that a buck has made his way through.

Previously on "The Amazing Race," Team Superfan almost lost due to their lack of skills with balloon animals. They didn't even run to the Pit Stop, so defeated were they in their hearts. They are my son's favorite team, and he would have cried if they lost (he's 6). So the Superfans better race harder this time or they'll have to come to my house and apologize. Oh, and Team Legs went home. Now, let's stay in Indonesia! It has about 17,000 islands, even a 24-hour marketplace, there is so much to do. First up?

In a few days, hundreds of people hoping to buy a pony will gather in tiny Chincoteague, Va. Hanging over the annual auction, shimmering like a mirage in the summer heat, will be the legend of Misty, the wild pony at the center of Marguerite Henry's famous 1947 children's book, "Misty of Chincoteague." But the reality is this: If Misty were alive today, she would probably live in Maryland, not in Virginia.Misty was a wild pony (at least, until she was auctioned), living unfettered and free on Assateague Island, which straddles both states.

The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the … wait, those aren't sheep, they're alpacas. And those rangy bovines look an awful lot like bison. And what about those long-legged turkeys running loose in the barnyard? St. Mary's County, site of Maryland's first capital, has long been economically dependent on agriculture, and until a few decades ago, tobacco was king. One look at the farms scattered about the countryside, though, makes it clear that change has taken place. Living green, eating fresh and appreciating local heritage have resulted in a rise in agritourism in this Southern Maryland county, where visitors can experience on a personal level the trials and triumphs of unconventional approaches to farming.

In an age when there are "baby apps" for the iPad and HBO is reissuing classic children's books as made-for-TV musicals, it's nice just to take the kids to visit some goats. Some hard-working, big-eating goats. My husband and I spent a weekend soloing as handlers for Mikey, the 22-month-old grandson with the halo of blond curls, and when a friend spotted a herd of goats along the side of a road, we were off. There's nothing toddlers like more than barnyard animals that are roughly the same size they are. "Goats!

Weary as you must be by now of the hopefully hullabaloo, a post at Language Log by Mark Liberman, "The H-word,"   gives rise to some further observations. Professor Liberman demonstrates a salient fact about the disparagement of hopefully  as a sentence adverb. After a long slumber as an occasional usage, it awoke in the 1960s and had a vogue. That made it immediately suspicious to language mavenry, which despises such popular effloresces. You cannot, after all, hold yourself proudly aloof from the herd if you speak as the herd does.

Spring brings all kinds of new life. The Assateague Island Allia nce reports two foals born recently to the wild horse herd that roams the National Seashore near Ocean City. The little filly pictured here was born last Friday to an 8-year-old mare dubbed April Star (aka N2BHS-C, under the alpha-numeric identification system used by the National Park Service to track the genetic lineage of the herd). The alliance, which holds an an annual horse naming auction to help support management of the animals, initially reported that this was the only new addition expected this year to the 114-horse herd because of the contraceptives administered to keep the wild animals from overpopulating the narrow, sandy barrier island.  But late yesterday, the alliance emailed that a second foal had been spotted by a park staffer, this one born to a mare named Queen Latifah (aka N9BFT)

About 130 wild ponies were herded across a strait between Assateague and Chincoteague islands Wednesday during the 86th July crossing, said a spokeswoman for the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company, which runs the event. More than 40,000 people watched as members of fire company's committee of "Saltwater Cowboys" guided the herd from atop their horses, said Denise Bowden. It took 4 minutes and 40 seconds for the herd to make the passage across 75 yards, she said. The tide was low and the herd was able to walk about half the distance across, Bowden said.

For nearly 14 years, Paul Hines has had a Churchville home where the buffalo roam.Well, not exactly roam. The main point about raising these ornery, shaggy symbols of yesteryear America is to keep them confined behind a fence, so they won't wander off to eat the neighbor's fruit or take a swipe with their substantial horns at other animals or unwary humans."

ESTES PARK, Colo. -- The elk that roam across Rocky Mountain National Park in their slow-moving majesty have become a signature attraction for tourists and an economic driver of the local economy in this town at the park's edge. But the animals leave some mighty big hoof prints. The park's biology has been skewed by elk overpopulation, which biologists say is squeezing out even butterflies and beavers, both of which need the aspen groves that the elk herd of perhaps 3,000 animals decimates in its search for food.

Bringing up deer. Does are pretty good at it, as the statewide population of 230,000 would indicate. But in most cases, elected officials might be better off not bringing up deer at all. The beautiful critters with the soulful brown eyes can still be the third rail of wildlife politics. Just ask Baltimore County Council member Todd Huff, one of the authors of the law to thin the herd in local parks. Huff and council colleague David Marks took the buck by the antlers when it became apparent that deer were treating county lands like an all-you-can-eat salad bar. "We had a major problem.
