Another Sunday, another church

Chapel of the Transfiguration, Moose, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. 

 

The Chapel of the Transfiguration is a small log chapel in Grand Teton National Park, in the community of Moose. The chapel was sited and built to frame a view of the Cathedral Group of peaks in a large window behind the altar. The chapel, which was built in 1925, is owned and operated by St. John's Episcopal Church in Jackson.


The chapel was built to serve guests and employees of the dude ranches that stretched north of Jackson along the base of the Teton Range. The land was donated by Maud Noble, owner of nearby Menor's Ferry, predating the establishment of Grand Teton National Park in 1929 and its expansion into the Moose area in 1950. The design was based on Our Father's House in Ethete on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Construction materials, labour and funds were provided by local ranchers.

Such beautiful colors, Alan - gorgeous image! Nothing like the Tetons, eh?
Alan: It's difficult to comprehend the sheer size of them. Your home state, of course.
Originale petite chapelle, on dirait une maison.
Alan: There's not a huge population in the area so the size was appropriate.

Oh, at first I thought we are in the Alps - a wonderful area of the States and a grandious photo with the mountains, trees and the Chapel, I miss only the sheep.
What a fantastic setting for this lovely little chapel.
You could sell this image, Alan. Excellent!
Pretty well a masterpiece, Alan.
Quite a change from the usual old English churches...
