We're getting an early start on the summer road trip this week! We'll embark on a late-night nature trek, replete with sounds of critters that go bump in the night. We'll also hear about a spectacular cross-country road trip, with a very special stop in D.C. And we'll pull out our waterproof boots and hike through the marshes of Maryland's Assateague Island, in search of the most elusive of the island's famous wild horses.
