Corn Mazes

I was fascinated to learn that this exists. I find modern society so busy that to have this happening in the world really makes me happy.

Starting in the Fall, there are farmers that create mazes in their cornfields. They all try to out do each other for the best maze. One of the more known farms to participate is “Mike’s Maze” at Warner Farm. Their 2006 maze of Juila Child is shown above. Mike’s Maze website also has some interesting links for information on the history of mazes and labyrinths.

There is a company called "Maize" that is the world’s largest cornfield maze company. They have completed more than 1000 mazes and they have a Guinness world record. Their website has a map of the United States that show all of the farm locations that participate. It also has direct links to those farms. Check it out.

Every year in the Portland, OR area there is a farm, maybe even a couple, on Sauvie's Island that does a corn maze. It is a lot harder than it looks! And with all those masked creatures running around during the Halloween season you neven know what you might find around the corner!

The last time I did this maze it was cold, dark, and raining! Then we followed it up with a great fire and good drink. What a great night (can someone find me something like that in LA? - doubt it!)
