Stittville Corn Maze

My three day canoe trip to Big Bay-Piseco Lake-Fall Stream-Fall Lake-Sacandaga Lake-Lake Pleasant was canceled due to rain and low temperatures.

Saturday Eric had a noon time soccer game in cool temperatures (low 40s) with wind and rain.  The kids were chilled, even when playing.  They scored a 5-0 win vs Oneida.  Afterwards Trevor came over to play with Eric and spend an overnight.

I cleaned out the hog wire supports that I used for peas and tomatoes.  I picked 6-8 acorn squash and left another 5-6 for later harvesting.

We invited Skip and Steve for dinner and all played pitch afterwards.  While Trevor had played on teams before, Eric had only played with Kathryn and I.  Other than a couple of overly aggressive bids Eric did fine.

Sunday afternoon we tackled the Stittville Corn Maze which this year featured the USA Flag with the Statute of Liberty and an eagle superimposed.  The goal was to find three mailboxes; each one contained a portion of the overall map.

Trevor, Eric and Kathryn prepare to enter the maze.

Trevor and Eric would run down the intersections as advance scouts and return with valuable information about intersections and dead ends.

Jim kept track of the group’s location on an overall map.


Trevor and Eric display the three map sections they discovered.
