Chapel of the Transfiguration…Grand Teton National Park
A visit to Grand Teton National Park can be an overwhelming experience. With it’s rugged hikes and abundant wildlife it’s hard to peel yourself away to explore the other aspects of the park.
However, don’t leave the park without making a stop at the Chapel of the Transfiguration.
At first glance, this 1925 chapel looks like any other small quaint log structure. It’s not until the crowds have all gone and only the sound of the wind is left, that you really start to see the history here. Take time to reflect as you sit on one of the old wooden pews, notice the detail, watch the light through the stained glass windows and listen to the buzz of the flies. Imagine the weddings, funerals and pleading prayers that been witnessed in same seat you occupy. You may leave with your mind in a different form than when you arrived.
Let the adventure begin…
