Rain creates 10-mile-long lake in Death Valley

Make the Death Valley lake systems great again! In the Pleistocene, a little over 100,000 years ago, the climate was cool and wet in the area.  Glaciers grew in the Sierras, and big lake systems were present in Death Valley, particularly Lake Manly. It's possible to see the wave-cut notches at Shoreline Butte - I've seen them myself. Very cool stuff.

Was Death Valley (Lake Manly) a blind lake?

Not familiar with that term. It was a closed basin, as far as I'm aware.

The Salton Sea was a lake generally in that area
