About the photo:
On July 3, 2004, the LeConte Memorial Lodge in Yosemite Valley celebrated its Centennial. This scene, showing a 360 degree view, was photographed just before the Rededication Ceremony. You can view a photo album of the event and also read the presenters Rededication Remarks. The speakers standing at the podium behind the Sierra Club banner in this photo are: National Park Service planning manager Michael Reynolds; LeConte Memorial Lodge Curator Bonnie Gisel; Sierra Club Vice-President Bernie Zaleha; and Sierra Club LeConte Memorial Lodge Committee Chair Harold Wood. Crouching next to the Sierra Club banner is Sierra Club Conservation Director Bruce Hamilton and Stephen Joseph's two sons. Leaning against the granite wall on left is Dr. Joseph LeConte in person (portrayed by Steve Pauly). The photographer, Stephen Joseph, is sitting on the right, in the purple t-shirt.
