Hi Lauren First I think it is important to differentiate unicellular organisms into two groups: procaryotic (ie bacteria) and eucaryotic (ie protists). A good webpage for explaining the differentiation is found here Bacteria are pretty ubiquitous in the world so ones found in the rockies may also be found in other locations howerver certain strains may be unique to specific envrionments. Here are some websites to help you investigate types of bacteria and their different environments: Microbe World Microbe Zoo An interesting eucaryotic organism found in snowy environents such as the rockies is described as snow algae Good luck Chris
