Neogene sediments in a structural and geomorphic high in the southwestern Honey Lake basin represent lacustrine deposition from 3.7 to 2.9 Ma, interrupted once by a significant lowstand. Tephras in the upper section are 3.26 Ma and 3.06 Ma. A thick debris-flow bed, truncated by an erosional surface and overlain concordantly by a thin interval of subaerial sediments, is evidence for lake-level fall at ca. 3.4 Ma. The dominant structure is a broad east-southeast–plunging anticline cut by several sets of faults. These include northwest-striking dextral and northeast-striking sinistral strike-slip faults and a conjugate set of west-northwest–striking thrust faults; all are...
