Clinton Supporter Goes for a Hike to Relax After Election, and Runs Into Hillary Clinton

Bill Clinton took a photo of the New York woman with Hillary Clinton

Margot Gerster posted on Facebook that she was feeling so "heartbroken" after the election that she decided to go for a walk Thursday.

The White Plains, N.Y., resident took her daughters to one of their "favorite places" in Chappaqua, N.Y. It turns out Chappaqua's most famous couple were also on a head-clearing hike.

Gerster spelled out her encounter on Facebook:

"We were the only ones there and it was so beautiful and relaxing. As we were leaving, I heard a bit of rustling coming towards me and as I stepped into the clearing there she was, Hillary Clinton and Bill with their dogs doing exactly the same thing as I was."

"I got to hug her and talk to her and tell her that one of my most proudest moments as a mother was taking Phoebe with me to vote for her," she continued.

She said Clinton hugged her back and "exchanged some sweet pleasantries and then I let them continue their walk. Now, I'm not one for signs but I think ill [sic] definitely take this one. So proud."

Gerster posted a photo with her description of the meeting in Chappaqua, about 40 miles north of New York City. The photographer? Bill Clinton.
