I love this time of year for so many reasons, but the best reason is heading to those pumpkin patches and finding the perfect pumpkin for Halloween.

It's a mere two weeks until Halloween and I don't even have a pumpkin yet. And since I'm going searching for my own personal Great Pumpkin, you can come along and check them out with me.

Studt's Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze

I love this place. So many pumpkins to choose from and the best corn maze on the Western Slope. When you go, be still long enough to listen and you will hear the sound of laughter and fun. The perfect environment for pumpkin choosing.

Moon Farm Pumpkin Patch

Who doesn't love Moon Farm? Honestly, one of my most favorite places on Earth and enough pumpkins to make any Halloween fan proud. And don't forget the haunted straw maze!

Falfa Pumpkin Patch-Durango

Family run and you can pick your pumpkin off the vine! How often do you get to do that? Plenty of fun activities and things to do as well.

Punk's Pumpkin Patch

Located only five minutes North of Delta, 20 Minutes from Montrose and 30 Minutes from Grand Junction, you're going to want to check these guys out. And not just pumpkins, either. There are plenty of fun things to do with the family, just remember to wear socks if you plan on doing any jump house jumping!

Covered Bridge Ranch-Montrose

A complete fall fun excursion. You'll not only find pumpkins but a lot of fun things to do as well. Watch out for the Giant Spider Web! And if hay bale mazes are your thing, check out the one they have here. And they even have one for the little ones!

OK, I admit it. I love the fall and I love Halloween, so let's go!
