Late Pleistocene lakes and wetlands, Panamint Valley, Inyo County, California
This report is from 2008.

To put things into perspective, here is some info from WikiPedia:
The ice sheets reached their maximum coverage about 26,500 years ago (26.5 ka BP). Deglaciation commenced in the Northern Hemisphere at approximately 20 ka and in Antarctica approximately at 14.5 ka, consistent with evidence for an abrupt rise in the sea level at about 14.5 ka.
