ROSY BAYOU. Rosy Bayou rises a mile south of New Energy in east central Houston County (at 31°24' N, 95°20' W) and runs northeast for 5½ miles to its mouth on Hickory Creek, a mile south of Cedar Point (at 31°25' N, 95°15' W). It traverses flat terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
