It's not high enough but it's ready

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - August 9, 2010

A handful of people with surveying gear are marking off this year's Mesilla Valley Maze in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

The nine-acre corn field will feature the silhouette of a man, a telescope and the Disney dog, Pluto.

It's meant as a tribute to the discovery of the dwarf planet.

Pluto was first spotted by a Las Cruces astronomer 80 years ago.

The corn should be 10-feet-tall when the maze opens September 25.

Organizers say 50,000 people are expected to walk through it.
