Lake Idaho stretched from present day Twin Falls, ID to as far west as Baker City, Oregon. At its maximum, the lake was about miles long by 60 miles wide, and . Based on an erosion rate of 1, years for the Bonneville shoreline and amino acid ratios, Scott et al. () suggest that the Lake Bonneville shoreline was abandoned suddenly by ca. 15, years ago and that the Bonneville flood inundated the Snake River through Red Rock Pass betw years ago.

THE CATASTROPHIC LATE PLEISTOCENE BONNEVILLE FLOOD IN THE SNAKE RIVER PLAIN, IDAHO By HAROLD E. MALDE ABSTRACT A catastrophic flood caused by overflow and rapid lowering of Pleistocene Lake Bonneville at Red Rock Pass near Preston, Idaho, descended Marsh Creek Valley and reached the Snake River Plain at the site of Pocatello.

The Bonneville Flood (Maulde, ; Conley, ; Maley, ) occurred when waters of prehistoric Lake Bonneville were catastrophically released into the Snake River Plain, through Red Rock Pass in southwestern Idaho, creating erosional features known as scablands.
