Acres of Corn! Hanging With Karen.

Leave a comment

 My sister Karen surprised me with a visit last week.  Her arrival was the best B-Day surprise! 

Visited the Corn Maze the Denver Botanic Garden holds at their Chatfield location each year.  I’d never been to a corn maze.  Was different than running around in the fields of corn I grew up around.  There, you just follow a row to the end. In a corn maze, you follow worn paths through with others, eating not-good-for-you food, while nervously giggling about feeling lost and somewhat out of control.

Karen was bummed she couldn’t chuck corn at others:

We ate yummy, not good for you food:

Looking down at the maze from a platform.  See the depressions?  Those are the paths.  It’s in the shape of a T-Rex head this year. We got lost all over but especially near the head:

Went on a hay-ride.  Amazing people crawled around at that pace, once.  Might be good for us to slow down now and then?

There’s an old homestead (the Hildebrands) on the property.  It’s a beautiful old home with outbuildings including a root cellar, outhouse, chicken coop, barns, etc.

Fun, relaxing day. Took a pretty ride home afterwards.  Apparently the corn maze is open at night, lit up but with people “haunting” it.  A friend asked me if I’d like to go through at night.  We shall see!  I might…maybe…they do have a pumpkin patch there.  I’m a sucker for carving Jack O’ Lanterns.
