Runnning a maize maze? Did you know there is an app for that?

Sep 27

Our family, joined some of the the Rio Grande baby Sitting Coop families for a visit to The McCall Family Pumpkin Patch this weekend.

Every year they set aside 16 acres for a Maize Maze – last years featured the Lobos (you can find it on Google earth) and this year the some of the Peanuts gang.

My sons and I decided we want to do a geographic drawing of the maize maze, so we used GPS-X for the iPhone which is an amazing tool that I have previously reviewed.

If you click on the aerial above, you can see our digital tracks overlaid on top of last years aerial photo from GoogleMaps/GoogleEarth.

If you look carefully, you can see the outline of Charlie Brown’s head in our trail.

Next year, we plan to arrive earlier, and run the entire maize maze and map out the complete routes.
