MERIDIAN CREEK. Meridian Creek rises one mile northeast of Fairy in the eastern part of Hamilton County (at 31°51' N, 97°58' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, it runs southeast for twenty-five miles to its mouth on the North Bosque River, two miles north of Clifton in south central Bosque County (at 31°49' N, 97°36' W). The stream is joined in its middle reaches by the North and South Prongs of Meridian Creek. The surrounding terrain is variable with some local shallow depressions and is surfaced by shallow, stony clay loam that supports juniper, oak, and chaparral.
