The tardigrade is my spirit animal. They’re cute and unique and they’re resilient as all get out. They can be frozen, boiled, deprived of water for a decade, or even sent into outer space, and they still survive. They can also be found everywhere, from the depths of the ocean to the freezing Alaskan tundra, but they’re also found, conveniently, in the moss in your back yard. They are the ultimate world travelers. That’s something to aspire to, if you ask me.
I love them so much, in fact, that I’ve already blogged about them twice. If you really want to know more about these amazing creatures, check out those posts here. And here.
I also happen to adore corn mazes. Autumn is my favorite season, and corn mazes, for me, are the epitome of autumn. I love getting lost in these labyrinths and figuring my way out, all while enjoying the crisp cool air. Nothing quite like having fun while exercising!
So imagine my utter joy when a friend sent me this article about a corn maze in the shape of a tardigrade! Road trip! If I didn’t have qualms about going all the way to Lodi, Wisconsin in the midst of a pandemic, I’d definitely be paying a visit to Treinen Farm, which has one of the ten best corn mazes in the US each year.
If you’re anywhere near this place between now and November 8, 2020, I highly recommend you get your tardigrade corn maze nerd on! Oh, yeah!
