Margot Gerster was hiking with her 13-month-old daughter, Phoebe, to clear her head after the election results when she came upon Bill and Hillary Clinton.

“I saw a couple of people and two little dogs walking toward me and as I got closer, I realized it was Bill and Hillary Clinton,” Gerster told Inside Edition. “I asked to take a picture with her and he offered to take it for me, and the rest is history.”

Gerster posted the photo to her Facebook page Thursday afternoon and it quickly spread.
