Small in area but large in outlook, Maryland is shaped by dramatic Chesapeake Bay, which separates the Delmarva Peninsula from the rest of Maryland. The Atlantic edge of Maryland’s share of the peninsula is sprinkled with sandy barrier islands, including Assateague Island, a national wildlife refuge.
Inland, the level farmland of the peninsula contains unexpected bald cypress swamps.
Chesapeake Bay, on the western shore of the peninsula, supports an abundance of plants and animals. Salt marshes attract migratory birds and waterfowl by the thousands to feed on crab eggs and wild rice.
The level terrain that surrounds the bay on both sides rises higher toward the west, swelling into rolling farmland. This region features fields of tobacco, a Maryland crop that dating from colonial days.
The land continues to rise and fold increasingly toward the northwest, first into the low rolling hills of the Piedmont, where dairy farms dot the fertile valleys, then into the forested ridges of Maryland’s small share of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The first bulge of the panhandle is a mostly wooded place, good habitat for wild turkeys.
The farthest triangular reach of the panhandle is roughest of all. This area truly represents the Alleghenies, with white water rivers, forests thick with conifers, and wildlife aplenty.
