The Enterprise –– Michael Koff

Waiting to walk: Dressed in pink from head to toe on a windy and cold Saturday afternoon, this girl listens patiently to dignitaries during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for  the Helderberg Hudson Rail Trail but is eager to use her walking stick. The corridor was bought from the Canadian Pacific Railroad in 2009 by Albany County with funding from New York State Parks and Scenic Hudson. The Friends of the Rail Trail, a committee of the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy, have worked with municipalities to further the project.
