SAND SPRING CREEK
SAND SPRING CREEK. Sand Spring Creek rises 3½ miles north of Valley Spring in northwest Llano County (at 30°54' N, 98°49' W) and runs southeast for 7½ miles, through the community, to its mouth on Johnson Creek, three miles southeast of Valley Spring (at 30°49 N, 98°47' W). It traverses an area of the Llano Basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, covered with soil of deep, fine, sandy loam. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.
