Swedetown Creek, Hancock


Nonesuch Shale
Freda Sandstone
Copper Harbor Congl
Portage Lake Volcanics

Tilted Nonesuch beds in the Swedetown creek bed just north of Hancock.

Swedetown Creek has eroded into the Nonesuch over a 0.3 mi length of its stream bed, and you can walk this easily in summer to get a good look at the formation and its characteristics. Interesting cleavage bedding relationships can be seen which could reflect on the rift subsidence mechanisms.
