Happy Birthday NPS! I can never thank all of the park rangers and workers who searched for and found my friend and me. We spent the summer of 2008 in Denali and ended up getting lost on one of our camping excursions. The NPS put so much work and time into finding us and after being in the Alaskan wilderness for 7 days we were finally picked up by one of the search helicopters and brought back to park headquarters. I'll never forget seeing my parents faces as the helicopter landed after thinking that I might never see them again. I owe that moment and the many joyful moments since to all the dedicated NPS rangers and employees. You are all so greatly appreciated and do such a wonderful job to keep our national parks up and running and to keep us all safe while being able to enjoy the beautiful wilderness of this country. Thank you so much and Happy Birthday NPS!
