MILLER CREEK (Llano County). Miller (Miller's) Creek rises 5½ miles northeast of Lone Grove in northeast Llano County (at 30°53' N, 98°32' W). The stream was named for Carter Miller, an early settler near the community. It follows a southerly course for 10½ miles to its mouth on the Llano River, four miles southwest of Lone Grove (at 30°46' N, 98°33' W). The creek traverses an area of the Llano basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain with locally deep and dense dissection, covered with shallow and stony soils to sandy and clay loams. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.
