Great outdoors: Wye Island

A 2,800-acre island sitting among the tidal recesses of the Chesapeake Bay, the state-controlled <b><a href="http://findlocal.baltimoresun.com/listings/wye-island-natural-resources-management-area-queenstown">Wye Island Natural Resource Management Area</A></b> affords visitors a tidewater experience in all its natural, undeveloped glory. Wildlife is abundant, especially deer and birds; the island's six miles of trails offer plenty of viewing opportunities. Fishing spots abound in the numerous coves that dot the shoreline. There's also a three-century-old holly tree that's still welcoming visitors. Several campsites and a former hunting lodge known as the Duck House can accommodate overnight stays. <i>--Chris Kaltenbach</i><br><br>
