The dustiness covered what footsteps we might have left behind. Parched tan stalks towered over our heads while hiding dried cobs of corn. A shadowy trail was cast by the softening afternoon sun of autumn as earthy scents enveloped us.  Following others on this adventure, we wondered if our map was truly showing us the way.

The meticulously plowed course patterned the United States of America.  Each destination awarded informational facts that taught us something new or had us remembering something we thought we had forgotten. Winding and venturing through this reproduction of our country in one afternoon amazed us!

This post was inspired by RemembeRed.  The writing prompt was to conjure something:  An object, a person, a feeling, a color, a season – whatever you like, in 100 words.

    • Yes. The map shows many different destinations inside the maze, and the goal is to find each destination. I referred to the website in this post, and if you are interested, click on the link and you can see all the different mazes that have been created over the years. Going through this maze is just one of the corny things we like to do in Minnesota! I changed a couple words around in my post so hopefully it is more clear that we were actually inside the maze??? Thanks.

  1. Oh, my gosh this looks fun. Your words are encouraging me to get outside soon! Don’t know if I have the guts to tackle the whole US, but at least a trip to pick a pumpkin.

  2. That sounds like a great way to spend a fall afternoon!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog… several times. I finally found yours. I couldn’t seem to link back to you through your Gravatar link. It finally occurred to me to just do a Google search. Doh!
