The parents of Rocky Mountain National Park ranger Jeff Christensen are saying thanks Sunday -- to park officials, the town of Estes Park and the dozens volunteers who searched for their son.
Christensen hadn't been seen since going on a routine patrol July 29th. A hiker found his body near Spectacle Lakes Saturday. Park officials say it appears the 31-year-old died after a fall.
Sunday Dale and Chris Christensen said their son once said:
"You know, if I ever die while at work in the mountains, do not cry for me because you will know that I died doing what I love. But if I die in a car accident on my way to an office job, then cry for me because you will know I was miserable and not doing what I loved."
