BRUSHY CREEK (CALLAHAN COUNTY)
BRUSHY CREEK (Callahan County). Brushy Creek rises just south of Farm Road 2228 and ten miles northwest of Cross Plains in southeast Callahan County (at 32°15' N, 99°14' W) and runs thirteen miles north to its mouth on Deep Creek, a mile north of Interstate Highway 20 and ten miles east of Baird (at 32°24' N, 99°15' W). Among its principal tributaries are two forks, East and West. The East Fork rises five miles east of Admiral (at 32°17' N, 99°12' W) and runs five miles northwest to its mouth on the main creek (at 32°20' N, 99°13' W); the West Fork rises two miles east of Admiral (at 32°18' N, 99°16' W) and runs five miles north to its mouth (at 32°21' N, 99°15' W). The main stream's upper reaches pass through variable slopes surfaced by shallow, stony clay loams that support juniper, oak, grasses, chaparral, and cacti; its lower reaches enter flood-prone flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. Both forks run through rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loams in which grow scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, live oak, juniper, and grasses.
