Living on the old Prair-ee

Greg's work harvest is finished and he finally has a weekend off. We were invited to a wine-tasting at a small, family-owned vineyard and winery near Denton, and the drive took us on several miles of gravel roads. We enjoyed the nice Fall day, seeing part of an area that was new to us.
Then we came across this sign. Well that looks like fun! But we needed to be at the winery in a few minutes, so we didn't stop to investigate. I snapped a few photos of the scenery as we drove. Just the usual pastures, cows, and hay bales.

On the way back, Greg stopped at the top of the hill overlooking the corn maze so I could take a few pictures. We couldn't really see the maze, but it looks like a fun place to go. The web site details what is offered there. Maybe in a few years when the kids are older...
Here's the entrance. The maze is on the right:
You can see the cars lined up at the edge of the cornfield. I would have wanted to stop, but we didn't have time to explore 42.6 acres of maze. If you click on the web site link above, you'll see an ariel view. Looks like fun!
Lots of times I've heard people say that Nebraska is pretty boring to drive through when they're on the interstate. True, it's not the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, or the Angelina National Forest in Texas, you get my drift, but it has a simple beauty all it's own. Oh, and the world's largest corn maze. Let's not forget that.

I think Nebraska looks beautiful in your photos - I'd love to visit someday. :-)
