What do you do when you encounter the President on the Mount Mitchell trail?

The Ashville Citizen has an amusing tale of Karen Russell, a tourist from Westerville, Ohio, on her chance encounter with President Obama which we reported earlier as he was hiking off the Blue Ride Parkway. She thought he was headed for Mount Mitchell. She said she first encountered Secret Service all in black who scanned her with a black metal detecting wand and went through he her pockets and checked out her camera.
