|Looking across Jenny Lake into Cascade Canyon|
There are some shaded benches at the outlook, and I took advantage of one to sit and draw the scene. Better results than yesterday's ... a long way to go, but it feels good making progress.
We went south to a picnic area close to a trout stream, and with a wonderful view of the Tetons.

We continued south, nearly to Moose, turning into the road to the Chapel of the Transfiguration. We went past the Chapel to Menor's Ferry. Way back when, there was a need for a ferry to cross the Snake River from the more developed east side of Jackson Hole to the inviting undeveloped west side. Bill Menor, an entrepreneurial sort, constructed a hand powered ferry big enough to carry a horse and wagon - later an automobile - across the Snake. The site includes Menor's cabin and a functioning general store (Menor's entrepreneurship included running the general store and being the local smithy) as well a working replica of the ferry Menor operated for crossing the Snake River, powered by the Park Ranger.

We left the fee part of the Park at Moose after a look at the Visitor Center there, went across the Snake, made a quick stop at Duncan's complex of stores that held nothing useful for us. Then on around the east side of Jackson Hole, marveling (we have done a lot of marveling on this trip) at the views of the Tetons that are possible looking across the valley.
