The author of the blog, Mike Robinson, writes about healthy living and the outdoors in Maryland; gathering the best food, exploring, walking, hiking, biking, paddling, hunting and fishing. A recent addition to this blog is Mike’s Art Gallery, which features select “En Plein Air” (outside) paintings and drawings that illustrate the Old Line State. A 12th generation Marylander, he and his family reside on the Broadneck Peninsula just outside of Annapolis.

Our state has been called the Land of Pleasant Living and America-in-Miniature for good reason. We have high mountains, rolling hills, deep forests, bountiful farmland, with creeks and rivers running to the Chesapeake Bay. The state stretches from the Appalachian mountains to the Atlantic coastline. There are endless opportunities for canoeing & kayaking, fishing, hiking, biking, hunting and other outdoor activities. You will spend a lifetime exploring all the locations available for outdoor adventures. Be Wild.
