The Deep Creek Range was once a part of the Lost River Range until the Yellowstone hot spot cut its path forming that big flat spot in southern Idaho. A lot of the geological characteristics are identical to those of the Lost Rivers. (I read this in a geology book somewhere. Don't remember too many details.)
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
