“A little education never hurt”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Take 45 minutes from your day driving around looking at mountains and spend some time in this part of Grand Teton National Park. Menor was an early settler to the area and he had a ferry that crossed the snake river. His general store is still standing and open - furnished in the time period when it operated - penny candy and other souvenirs can be purchased. Walk along the trail and see another historic property, the house where area settlers met and agreed to ask the government to take over the area as a national park. Finally stop in the tiny Church of the Transfiguration and be wowed by the views through the window behind the alter - very spiritual.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

This is a hidden gem. Walk the short walk, stop and get an old timey soda from the general store and stroll by the snake river. Go inside Noble Cabin for some great history and pictures!

“Different”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

The Church of the Transfiguration is amazing and the view from the altar is worth an airfare or two. The little shop is worth a visit to see the old rooms and decoration and compare with the modern Chinese artifacts!

Dont miss this charming walk to Menor's Ferry, the General Store, the carraige barn and the Church of the Transfiguration with it's rustic benches and lovely view behind the altar. Got a huckleberry soda and sasparilla at the General Store too !!!
The Taggert Lake trail is also a nice hike in the Grand Teton Nat Park.

“Great Fun”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

From the same parking lot as the Chapel of the Transfiguration, walk toward the Snake River to the white general store. A fun collection of turn of the last century items (but currently made) to buy or look at. After the wood stove gets fired up, there are free cookies--buy a sarsaparilla and enjoy the view. When the river allows, a free ferry ride is available across the Snake powered only by the river and a cable--the way the original crossing was made. Wagons, a beaverhide boat and other old transportation items are under a close-by shed. Excellent for kids and adults.
