A-mazed and corn-fused

Yesterday was a beautiful fall day and my daughter, son-in-law, husband and I went out to Sauvie Island to the Pumpkin Patch. Emily (daughter) and Carlos (son-in-law) had been working way too hard and were ready for an outing and invited us along.

We started at the corn maze. Every year they come up with a new design. Somehow people are willing to pay 6 bucks to wander around lost for an hour or so. When you get into it, there are many dead ends and circles that bring you back to where you started. At two different points there are elevated platforms with stairs where you can get up above the corn for a better view. Doesn't help. It gets pretty funny when you start meeting people that you passed awhile back going the other direction.

Whew! We made it out alive.

    I have totally paid $6 to get lost in a corn maze! We have one near us that has quiz questiuons along the way, so you can't just find your way out -- you have to find all teh clues along the way. Last year we couldn't find #4 for the life of us!

  2. THere is a corn maze every year near where we live but I never went through it. Maybe next year. It sounds lik e fun.

    You had a beautiful day to wander around! I'm remembering a cold, rainy day being lost in the corn maze, but it was still fun.

  4. Terry that looks like such fun! Wish we had something like that here. Wonder if we could get one of the corn farmers to do it? :-)
