SALEM CREEK. Salem Creek rises six miles northwest of Los Angeles in north central La Salle County (at 28°27' N, 99°01' W) and runs southeast for nine miles into a low-lying area called the Dull Flats before emptying into Cibolo Creek six miles southwest of Fowlerton (at 28°26' N, 98°54' W). The creek passes through low, rolling terrain and descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions; clay and sandy loams support grasses, mesquite, and chaparral in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower.
