Park Ranger on top of Mount Rushmore

On a visit to my home state of South Dakota, I made a trip up to Mount Rushmore and saw someone standing at the top of Jefferson's head. I asked a park ranger who it was, and he told me it was another park ranger checking the motion sensors on top of the mountain. I have never seen this before, and doubt I will ever see it again.
