LITTLE RED MUD CREEK
LITTLE RED MUD CREEK. Little Red Mud Creek rises five miles southeast of the Red Mud Community in southwest Dickens County (at 33°25' N, 100°55' W) and runs south through remote ranchland for seven miles before entering the Salt Fork of the Brazos River twelve miles northwest of Clairemont in northwest Kent County (at 33°18' N, 100°53' W). The stream originates and terminates in terrain characterized by moderately steep slopes with locally high relief. For most of its length, however, the land through which it passes is flat to gently sloping. Shallow to moderately deep silt loams at the source and mouth yield in the stream's middle reaches to shallow clay and sandy loams, locally stony. Juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses grow along the middle part of the stream's course, and mesquite and grasses are found at its source and mouth.
