MONTELL CREEK. Montell Creek rises five miles northwest of Montell in far northwestern Uvalde County (at 29°37' N, 100°07' W) and runs southeast fourteen miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, one mile south of Montell (at 29°31' N, 100°01' W). Silver Creek, a tributary, joins Montell Creek three miles northwest of Montell. The local flat terrain, with locally deep and dense dissections, is surfaced by shallow to very shallow, gravelly loam and clay that support oak, juniper, grasses, and some mesquite. Toward the mouth steep to gentle slopes and benches are surfaced by deep loam and clay that support scrub brushes and sparse grasses.
