MULE CREEK (COKE COUNTY)
MULE CREEK (Coke County). Mule Creek rises seven miles southwest of Tennyson in southeastern Coke County (at 31°43' N, 100°24' W) and runs northeast, through sparsely settled ranchland, for fourteen miles before entering the Colorado River four miles south of Maverick in west central Runnels County (31°47' N, 100°13' W). The creek is said to have been named for a mule that died and was left at a crossing. It flows through moderately steep slopes with locally high relief, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams. Vegetation consists primarily of mesquite and grasses.
