https://www.nps.gov/iafl/index.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_Age_Floods_National_Geologic_Trail The Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail consists of a network of routes connecting facilities that will provide interpretation of the geological consequences of the Glacial Lake Missoula floods of the last glacial period that began about 110,000 years ago. It includes sites in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. At the end of the last Ice Age, 18,000 to 15,000 years ago, an ice dam in northern Idaho created Glacial Lake Missoula stretching 3,000 square miles around Missoula, Montana. The dam burst and released flood waters across Washington, down the Columbia River into Oregon before reaching the Pacific Ocean. The Ice Age Floods forever changed the lives and landscape of the Pacific Northwest.
