University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, Hedge Maze

What kind of person, young or old, wouldn't like to run a hedge maze?! A crazy person that's who... ok, maybe someone using a walker too... or afraid of bushes... or little kids running around them. Anyways, the arboretum has a really well done maze, which I'd like to highlight here. The pics below should help, but don't take my word for it - check it out for yourself, Sucka!

The late afternoon sun provided a great backdrop to the hedge maze, and right away you have to choose left or right? I don't know which one!!!

At many of the dead-ends / turn-arounds, the creators placed these clever signs, with different slogans of encouragement. While I suspect they work well on children, they had the same effect on me

The end of the maze is a nice, two story lookout over the entire site. It was a great place for a triumphant end, and well used by all participants. The colored walls in the pic can be opened or closed to provide a different maze depending on the ones chosen
