My sister and I enjoy walking at the Andre Nadeau Open Air base. It takes us about 75 minutes to walk the entire circuit. It's a lovely, quiet trail that crosses several streams. It's only about a 12-minute drive from where we each live, so it's a great place to meet and get in a quick health walk when our time is limited. It's free to walk the trails, even though people rent the installations for weddings, family reunions, etc. Today, a group of military cadets was enjoying an outing at the open air base.
Unfortunately, the base has been having problems with vandalism at night. Among other things, some of the tepees were vandalized and two were stolen.
The base is considering hiring a full-time guardian, and charging a fee for walking on the trails to help offset the expense. We'd better enjoy our free trail while we still can!
