ESCOBAS CREEK. Escobas Creek rises five miles west of Randado in northeastern Zapata County (at 27°05' N, 98°57' W) and runs southwest for sixteen miles to its mouth on Solomoneño Creek, eight miles west of Escobas (at 27°03' N, 99°08' W). The stream is dammed along its middle course to form tanks. It traverses an area of low-rolling hills and prairies surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses and mesquite.
