Lake Lenore and What to do with 20,000 Pounds of Sodium

So you have 20,000 pound of excess sodium that you don't need. What to do? Hey, lets take it up to Lake Lenore and roll the sodium filled drums down a cliff. We can film it and post it on YouTube. It would be really cool.

Lake Lenore in central Washington is located within the Grand Coulee down stream of Dry Falls. The lake is within the big canyon carved by the Missoula Floods. I came across this an amazing post WWII clip of the disposal of sodium at the lake. Plenty of fun to watch. Not sure they were thinking about YouTube posts, but this was probably a popular clip in the local movie theaters.
