About Me

dog happy 1Hello, my name is Jake and this is my blog about Rocky Mountain nature facts for kids and parents.  I have spent years in the Rocky Mountains with my owners and their children – hiking, camping, and just playing.  During that time I learned a lot about the natural world, which I will share with you in this blog.

Jake loved to try and catch squirrels, such that he would even try to climb up the tree after them. After a few years he moved to Salt Lake City, where he has spent years exploring the Rocky Mountains.

  1. I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours today, but I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as
    you probably did, the net might be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. I am so happy I found your blog, Jake! I am an avid lover of nature and animals, and always looking for new ways to share knowledge of our world with kids. An effective method I’ve found is teaching through laughter. I have some clever nature riddles that I share with my riddles that you may enjoy. Take a look: Nature Riddles
