In this case, it was 500 cyclists that were doing 50 miles a day along the Erie Canal. They were passing through Little Falls a bit before I was going to be going by, so I left work early to cover the event. Had a great time talking with them and learning about the funding that they were trying to get for the next 15 years for the paths along the canal.
A couple of nights later, the Amsterdam Mohawks were playing the Little Falls DiamondDawgs and Erin Hamlin, Olympic Bronze Medal winner was going to throw out the first pitch. Since both teams are ‘home town’ for me – working in Amsterdam and living just north of Little Falls, it seemed like a no-brainer to cover the game. Got some great shots and the paper ran with two of them.
