It's Truly A-Mazing... many bad puns one can come up with involving a corn maze. Maize Maze. Amazing. Or Amaizing. Maize Squared. It's incredibly corny. HA! Linguistics aside, corn mazes are truly cool. Jason and I went out to this one today, the largest in the world according to Guinness. At nearly 43 acres, it completely kicks this hedge maze's butt. We came prepared for battle, as we had heard tales of 3-hour tours, parties becoming separated, and the ever-present corn goblins. We took our trusty GPS, in hopes it might give us an edge. Armed with an aerial map, we ventured forth.

I did spot quite a few corn goblins, but I didn't let them slow me down!

It was hot (not very fall-like!) and super windy. It was a tricky maze, with many points where we could have gone very very astray. There was ample evidence of panicked maze-goers trampling their own paths through the corn! But we refused to give up. We stayed calm, we worked as a team, and we were rewarded with a time of under an hour!

It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. And it just goes to show that the couple that makes it through the corn maze together..........................

Glad you had a good time. I heard that a taser gun works wonders on those corn goblins.
