Seasonal Park Ranger Jeff Christensen died after he fell from a rugged mountain trail in the Rocky Mountain National Park's Mummy Range, near Estes Park, Colorado.

He was conducting a backcountry patrol to the Lawn Lake Trailhead when the accident occurred. A search for him was started after he failed to radio dispatch that evening and when he did not arrive for his shift the following morning.

The search involved over 200 people and lasted for over one week, until Ranger Christensen's body was found by a hiker on August 6th, 2005.

Ranger Christensen had served as a seasonal park ranger for four years. He is survived by his parents.

I will be in the Rockies this year on the 11th anniversary of your tragic death. I am glad I will be there because I know a part of you still roams those high peaks. I know you will be in my thoughts as you often are, especially on that day as I walk through your beloved mountains. You are not forgotten.
