Apple Annie Maze

Apple Annies is a great place to take the family for some good ole' fashion produce picking.  They have all sorts of veggies, melons, fruit and at the stores, you may be able to pick up some apple bread right now.   Best of all is that this time of the year there are pumpkins, hay rides and a maze.  They are  celebrating Arizona's centennial with a great Arizona map maze. 
Get this - 

The maze is open daily from September 29 to October 31;  9 am to 5:30 pm. 

It's 15 acres of corn with over 6 miles of pathways and has 3 levels of difficulty.  Thanks goodness they have interactive "passports" to help you find your way. 

To find your way to the area, start out in Wilcox, Arizona.  For cachers that would be about  N 32° 21.703 W 109° 53.206, and follow the map below to the orchard.
Thinkin' it may be too expensive to take the family?  Here's the pricing -
Adult – $7
(3-11 years) – $5
2 and under – Free

Adult – $9
(3-11 years) – $7
2 and under – Free

If you want to make a really big day at the farm, go early and catch the "All You Can Eat" pancake breakfast served from 8:30-10:30. Or enjoy the Apple Smoked Burger lunch served from 11:30-4. 

So now that you have heard about the pumpkins, food, maze, hay ride and all the fun, I guess I should say (since this is a caching site) that there are some great geocaches right along the roads in the area of the farms.  But of course there would be.  Here is a map with just a few.

The weather is good, the food is great and the caching will be fun.
