It was tough work navigating the intricate paths and oversized corn stalks that towered over 8-year-old Sean Scott as he made his way through a dinosaur-themed corn maze Saturday. Sean, his 6-year-old brother Noah, aunt Holly Hallett and grandmother Becky Chilcote of Mercersburg worked up quite a sweat after getting lost in the maze for nearly an hour. As the family enjoyed refreshments, Chilcote said despite their misadventure the family was having a great time. “I think Sean and I got stuck in the belly of the dinosaur,” Chilcote said with a chuckle.

SMITHSBURG -- Five-year-old Tyler Remsburg is running down the path, dwarfed by the walls of cornstalks to his right and left. His grandmother, Smithsburg-area resident Denise Cavender, jogs behind. "We have to go the other way," he calls back to Grandma. Tyler, of Hagerstown, had scouted ahead as the pair tries to find their way through the corn maze at Misty Meadow Farm. They are trying to find a series of fake cornstalks at which await a hole-punch to mark their map. The pair disappear around a bend so soon that the only sounds are crickets, cornstalks rustling in the breeze and cows mooing from the Herbst family's dairy operation nearby.
