12000 BC: The Great Melt

The ice retreated and in its wake were marshlands, streams and forests teeming with wildlife and fish. Large beasts such as wooly mammoths, bears and bison would carve migratory paths through this newly minted wilderness. This fertile terrain would create more ecological diversity than any of the US National Parks, including Yosemite or Yellowstone.
