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.
See fall starting to appear?
I loved this little scrappers ‘do:
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.
