You have to promise you’re not one of Osama’s henchmen before clicking on this
link: The Air
Force Academy in Colorado Springs has opened up a bunch of trails closed to
the public after the 9/11 attacks.
Demand for trails in the region has exploded, driven by a housing boom in
neighboring Gleneagle and Monument. Compared with other parts of the county,
these areas have relatively few places to access public land.
Exploring the academy can be intimidating at first. Armed airmen guard every
entrance. But all you need to access the land is a photo ID.
OK, so infractions are enforced with laser-guided smart bombs, but otherwise
you’re perfectly safe.
