North and South Menan Buttes are the two largest of a N-S line of basaltic tuff cones formed by phreatomagmatic eruptions along the Snake River in eastern Idaho. They were considered to be very late Pleistocene, or more probably, early Recent (Holocene) by Hamilton and Myers (1963). Creighton (1987) cites mapping by LaPoint that indicates a middle to late Pleistocene age, as does King (in Wood and Kienle, 1990).
