FIRST CREEK

FIRST CREEK. First Creek rises a mile from the Ochiltree-Lipscomb county line in southeastern Ochiltree County (at 36°21' N, 100°34' W) and runs southeast for eight miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek in Lipscomb County (at 36°15' N, 100°27' W). The stream was on the route of the Jones and Plummer Trail and on the range of the Seven K Ranch. First Creek traverses flat to rolling terrain with some local escarpments, surfaced by thick, fine sandy loam that supports mesquite brush and grasses.
