Lake Bonneville in late Pleistocene 14,500 years before present. The Pleistocene lakes are shown in light blue. The modern Great Salt Lake shown in dark blue. The flood wave broke through at Red Rock Pass and spread northward into Idaho and Oregon along the Snake River until it reached Scablands in Washington, then it followed the route of the Missoula flood waves to the sea along Columbia river.
