This MinDat page for Swan Creek was originally created as the western end of Wasson Bluff. However there are no minerals in the rock between Swan Creek and Wasson Bluff itself, so that distinction is not meaningful. It is being defined as only including the shoreline southwest of Swan Creek. This includes both basalt and, nearer to the mouth of the creek, sandstone.

It should be noted however, that in texts from the 1800s, Wasson Bluff was not named as such and in some cases the entire area was referred to as Swan Creek.
