    I have a picture, I was Googleing Little Lake Hotel and restaurant to find out what year it burned down, a shame because they had some nice parties there. I use to live in Ridgecrest. I'm putting together a slide show for YouTube and I wanted to add some history of the Hotel to the slide show. You can look for the slide show at Yahuda101 on YouTube. I'll try to post the picture for you if I can. Silly me, it burned down in 1989, I had it written on the pic.Name:  Little lake Hotel and Restaraunt before it burned in 1989 small.jpg

    The Dodge van on the left looks like my mom's old '72 Maxivan!
