The geology of the Snake River Plain in the vicinity of Melba and Murphy, in southwestern Idaho, provides evidence for changes that have occurred over the last several million years, during the late Cenozoic. Here, the local and regional geology is described and interpreted within the context of events that have contributed to the present-day landscape.
