Field of dead ends
Cornfields are like the epicenter for unexplainable phenomenon: ghosts of baseball players past, crazy religious kids with pitchforks, crop circles. OK, so crop circles aren’t really unexplainable as much as they’re the handiwork of a bunch of bored country folk with boards and rope. No matter, a similar idea is used to create the labyrinth of corn every fall at Cool Patch Pumpkins in Dixon—but these guys are smart enough to make money from their designs. Nearly 43 acres of paths and dead ends will be open into the evening through November 8. And a 3-acre corn maze at Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm in Wheatland adds an intellectual challenge to their maze, with questions that must be answered before progressing to the end. Both locations also have immense pumpkin patches, hay rides and loads of other family fun.
