Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
Meet Bonnie Gisel. (At least her left side.) She runs the evening lecture program during the summer at the LeConte Lodge, just west of Curry Village (across from “housekeeping”). The lodge was built by the Sierra Club in 1904. It is named in honor of geologist Joseph LeConte. He was an early Director of the Sierra Club.
Anyway, the summer programs are great. I have given a couple as shown above. We draw about 50 enthusiastic folks a session. When you go the park, be sure to check out the schedule for the week. Bonnie posts an easel out front with the speakers listed. They are also in the Yosemite “newspaper” that is handed out. Check out their website <HERE>.
