PUNTA DE AGUA CREEK
PUNTA DE AGUA CREEK. Punta de Agua Creek, also known as Major Longs Creek, rises in southeastern Union County, New Mexico (at 35°58' N, 103°02' W), and flows southeast for forty-five miles through Hartley County, Texas, into the Canadian River, eight miles west of Boys Ranch (see CAL FARLEY'S BOYS RANCH) in northeastern Oldham County (at 35°33' N, 102°26' W). The stream was originally named for Stephen Harriman Long. It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
