ALTITA CREEK. Altita Creek rises five miles northeast of Cotulla in west central La Salle County (at 28°27 N, 99°08' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, seven miles southwest of Cotulla (at 28°21' N, 99°09' W). Its course lies over low-rolling to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses, mesquite, and chaparral. Downstream, water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses predominate.
