Nice story in travel section of todays Oregonian about the Hot Lake hotel. Dave and Lee Manual have spent 10 years and $15 million to restore the Hot Lake Hotel near La Grande. He is a well known and talented sculptor. Used to have studio in Joseph, but they moved to Hot Lake. when they bought the run down 65,000 sq ft hotel. I spent time in La Grande when I was younger and that hotel was a landmark. well I guess it is again. 110 rooms, museum, foundry.
