This past weekend Noah and I went to Hill High Farm with family and friends and had a great time (minus the chill creeping in). First the group hitched a ride on the hay wagon. This is always a treat because you get to pick a pumpkin and learn about the farm. Vernon, the resident cowboy, trots along on his horse (Bo or Rooster usually) and his Aussie pup, Max, comes running along behind him.
After the ride and talking we took on the corn maze. This covers about five acres and has a few miles of trails hidden within. This year was the most challenging year we've had in about seven years. I mean, it was tough! The reason was because so many paths connected. The past couple of years you mostly only had one path with little off shoots, which is a little too easy. This year we hit the hidden stations inside in nearly random order: 1, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. Station number 2 took up about half of our time in the maze, which this year was a little over an hour and a half. Talk about a toughy! We finished finally and Sam, Ben, Noah, and me went and bought our apple cider and headed home. It was a beautiful day for the farm and gets the gears turning in my head... I wonder what it'd be like to live on a farm...
