ELM CREEK (MASON COUNTY)
ELM CREEK (Mason County). Elm Creek rises about 2½ miles west of Bodie Peak in eastern Mason County (at 30°50' N, 99°01' W) and runs southeast for nine miles, passing through sandy beds during the last half of its course, to its mouth on the Llano River, 2½ miles east of Castell in Llano County (at 30°42' N, 98°55' W). The stream, which rises in the limestone hills on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau, crosses low-rolling to flat terrain in the Llano basin area, with deep to shallow clayey and loamy soils that support brush, grasses, and open stands of live oak and mesquite.
