Water in Death Valley - life in Death Valley!

In the spring of 2005, plants rose up from ground dry from a six year drought. Bugs rejoiced, ate, mated, with the hope this miracle would come again. Can you image what California looked like before the oceans lost water to the poles and the North American Continent rose just enough to let the seas pour out and the marshes ran dry. This is east of Los Angeles and Ventura (where I came from) - there must have been a string of islands filled with beaches and marshes of tiger beetles!
