LaSalle, CO (KDVR) — It’s official: Peyton Manning is bigger than harvested corn.

Or maybe it would be more accurate to say he’s as big as a harvested corn field.

Whatever the case, the folks at the Fritzler Farm in LaSalle chose to model their annual corn maze after the Broncos’ new quarterback.

The intricate maze is located seven miles south of Greeley and will open to the public on Sept. 15.

The maze, which has a new design every year, is created with the use of a computer image and a GPS device that is attached to the corn husker.

The device directs the machine’s cutting pattern to match the chosen image.
