Letter to the Editor - The trails for adventure in Calais and St. Stephen line the St. Croix River

The trails for adventure in Calais and St. Stephen line the St. Croix River for us dwellers, neighbors and visitors to enjoy any season of the year. Whether on ski or snow shoe, on foot or bicycle, daily adventures await us.

And now, a confession: when an old bicycle guy like me is accosted by four teen lads alongside trail with their bicycles asking if I'd like to join their cycle clubs, I nearly fell off!

Not ever having met youth on Calais or St. Stephen trails on bicycles, my cycle visit to customs on both sides said they welcomed youth or anyone else to cross, as long as they presented a NEXUS card, a passport or a birth certificate with photo recommended.

So, teens, parents, and elder folk, why not have an international adventure right next door!.

Yours truly
