Watch this Puget Sound animation from 20,000 forward. Very nice demonstration of how the glaciation affected the PNW.
Impressive glaciation and I'll bet the melt wasn't due to Mastadon made warming or fish farts !

Interesting.  Maybe I missed it but I didn't see the Younger-Dryas impact in that.

You might be right there Chris.  I liked this animation because so little emphasis is placed on PNW glaciation.

Actually even less is placed on southern pole glaciation as it didn't cover land masses  But it should be factored in to history.
