I was fortunate enough to be chosen as one of their first launches, and I'm very proud to announce the launch of my contribution, a tour of the Menor's Ferry Historic District in Grand Teton National Park. The Dornan family was kind enough to give me permission to digitize and use our family's recently-discovered photographs, that clearly illustrate the transformation of the small town of Moose, Wyoming. As a child I had trouble envisioning the community that existed here before the creation of the National Park, and now, thanks to technology, I can!
The Rama travel app is free, then if you want to pay 99 cents to take a great tour of a great place, select the Gateway to the Tetons title. Thanks! Let me know what you think!
