Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes

Freeze the Grease, Save a Bundle. Keep Fats Out Of The Pipes. Info here!

Simple Solution. Big Reward.

After big holiday meals, no one likes to be stuck doing the clean-up. But if you aren't careful with leftover gravy, pan drip-pings and sauces a grease-clogged drain could ruin your holiday and cost you a bundle.

When fats, oils and grease are poured down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes causing messy sewer backups and expensive cleanup and repair.

The simple solution: Pour the grease into a can, freeze it, and toss the can into the trash.

Latourell Falls, a 249-foot plunge, is the most westerly of the falls in the Columbia River Gorge. The hike is a 2.4-mile loop, crossing four pleasant, small wooden bridges. This waterfall has a two-tiered drop – first a block fall that’s almost hidden, and then a plunge into a pool. The trail crosses Latourell Creek at the base of the falls and heads back down the west side of the creek.
Please wear hiking boots as the trail is rocky. Bring a sack lunch to eat at picnic tables across the road from the falls in Guy Talbot Park.

  • Round-trip travel: 32 miles
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Elevation gain: 520 feet
  • Suggested donation per hiker: $4
